The goal of this programme is to develop computational models of basic cognitive processes such as memory, reading, and speech perception. Most of the modelling takes place within a Bayesian framework. The modelling enterprise is driven by behavioural and neuroimaging studies which provide data to guide the development of the models and to test their predictions.
The latest version of this model (Norris & Kinoshita, Psychological Review, 2012) addresses the question of how people represent the order of letters in words. The model explains how we can read the famous “Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy” email.
