SQAB 2005 Tutorial: Simulation of Quantitative Models of Behavior
Saturday, May 28, 2005
1:00 PM–1:50 PM
International South (2nd floor)
Domain: Basic Research
Chair: Frances K. McSweeney (Washington State University)
Presenting Authors: : RUSSELL CHURCH (Brown University)
Abstract: Quantitative models of behavior have been developed that may be compared to observations of behavior. Simulated data comes from the interaction of a procedure and the quantitative model; observed data comes from the interaction of a procedure and an animal. The evaluation of a simulation is based on a comparison of the observed and simulated data, and on the simplicity and generality of the model. This talk will focus on how to simulate data, and why it is useful to do so.
