Reinforcement Learning Workshop

Given at the University of Victoria

Matlab scripts to validate and test computational models of human choice data

A series of Matlab scripts, functions, and some summary slides which highlight how to:

  • Validate a series of Reinforcement Learning models
  • Tune model parameters
  • Conduct both automatic (using FMINCON) and manual log likelihood estimation
  • Simulate human performance
  • Find the best fitting model for human choice data

Powerpoint slides provide the theoretical background (some ideas adapted from Lewandowsky & Farell - Computational Modelling of Cognition) of computational modelling

Made for a workshop hosted at the University of Victoria in 2023.
