    • Adapting to Change: The Role of Priors, Surprise and Brain Damage on Mental Model Updating 

      Filipowicz, Alexandre (University of Waterloo, 2017-04-24)
      To make sense of the world, humans build mental models that guide actions and expectations. These mental models need to be receptive to change and updated when they no longer accurately predict observations from an ...
    • The Interdependence of Attention, Memory, and Performance Based Reward 

      Haskell, Christie Rose Marie (University of Waterloo, 2016-06-15)
      Attention is frequently described as a distinct process with distinct effects, and many researchers have suggested that it has a distinct place in the brain. And yet attention is necessarily entangled with the systems ...
    • Mental Model Updating and Eye Movements 

      Go, Hanbin (University of Waterloo, 2020-08-31)
      Two studies investigated what eye movements can reveal about how we process surprising information and use it to update mental models. Mental models guide our actions to make decisions in a dynamic environment. Participants ...
    • Perception of Probabilities which are Subject to Change 

      Schirmeister, Julia (University of Waterloo, 2022-08-29)
      To navigate stochastic and changing environments, people need to keep track of ongoing probabilities as those probabilities are subject to change. Two distinct theories of mental-model updating are compared. In trial-by-trial ...
    • The Perceptual Mechanisms of Probability Effects 

      Jabar, Syaheed (University of Waterloo, 2018-04-13)
      Environmental statistics impact human behaviour. The more likely something is to occur, the faster and more accurate we are at detecting it. This probability effect has been studied in numerous forms. However, there is no ...
    • Probabilistic Adaptation and Voluntary Attention 

      Griffin, Sean (University of Waterloo, 2019-04-25)
      The following experiments considered the general phenomenon of behavioural adaptation in response to statistical regularities—which we refer to as probability learning (PL). In particular, these experiments focused on ...
    • Probability Antimatching 

      DiBerardino, Peter (University of Waterloo, 2023-07-20)
      We present a conceptual inversion of probability matching called ``probability antimatching.'' Where probability matching describes a decision strategy of stimulus pursuit, probability antimatching describes an analogous ...
    • Updating Local and Global Probability Events During Maze Navigation 

      Chen, Sixuan (University of Waterloo, 2022-08-29)
      Our mental models consist of relational knowledge. We apply this knowledge about whether something is near to or far from something else to solve tasks. As a specific exam- ple, when we navigate in our environment, we have ...
