Catlearn is an archive of formal models and simulations of categorization and associative learning in psychology.

Getting started

Some introductory materials on catlearn:

Mailing list

Current contents

The latest stable version of catlearn contains the following:

Models

Category learning

Contingency learning

Simulations

Simulations of several dataset-model combinations (e.g. krus96exit is a simulation of the krus96 dataset with the slpEXIT model). In some cases:

Inverse base-rate effect (krus96)

Stimulus frequency effect (nosof88)

Type I-VI problems (nosof94)

Category size (shin92)

Invite us to give a talk or workshop

The Catlearn Research Group are keen to talk about the catlearn project to any interested party (academic or non-academic). Why not invite us to give a talk or run a workshop where you are? We do not charge an appearance fee, but would prefer it if you were able to reimburse our travel expenses, including accommodation.

The Catlearn Research Group are based in the United Kingdom, Plymouth University

Previous talks and workshops have included:
