How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Thesis
Full-text available
Several authors highlighted that the time course of an experiment itself could have a substantial influence on the interpretability of experimental effects. Since mixed effects modeling had enabled researchers to investigate more complex problems with more precision than before, two naming experiments were conducted with college students, with and...
Article
Dynamical models make specific assumptions about cognitive processes that generate human behavior. In data assimilation, these models are tested against time-ordered data. Recent progress on Bayesian data assimilation demonstrates that this approach combines the strengths of statistical modeling of individual differences with the those of dynamical...
Article
Full-text available
In eye-movement control during reading, advanced process-oriented models have been developed to reproduce behavioral data. So far, model complexity and large numbers of model parameters prevented rigorous statistical inference and modeling of interindividual differences. Here we propose a Bayesian approach to both problems for one representative co...
Preprint
Signal detection theory (SDT) is used to analyze yes/no judgment accuracy in many research domains of psychology. SDT yields separate estimates for response bias/criterion (c) and for sensitivity/discriminability (d'). Discrimination performance can be displayed in Receiver Operating Characteristics (ROCs) plotting hit and false alarm rates at vari...

Full-text available
Integrating eye-movement control and sentence processing would mark an important step forward for mathematical models of natural language processing. We present an integrated approach by combining the SWIFT model of eye-movement control (Engbert et al., 2005) with key components of the LV05 (Lewis & Vasishth, 2005) parser. The integrated generative...
Article
Full-text available
Newly emerging pandemics like COVID-19 call for predictive models to implement precisely tuned responses to limit their deep impact on society. Standard epidemic models provide a theoretically well-founded dynamical description of disease incidence. For COVID-19 with infectiousness peaking before and at symptom onset, the SEIR model explains the hi...

A bstract Newly emerging pandemics like COVID-19 call for better predictive models to implement early and precisely tuned responses to their deep impact on society. Standard epidemic models provide a theoretically well-founded description of dynamics of disease incidence. For COVID-19 with infectiousness peaking before and at symptom onset, the SEI...
Article
Process-oriented theories of cognition must be evaluated against time-ordered observations. Here we present a representative example for data assimilation of the SWIFT model, a dynamical model of the control of fixation positions and fixation durations during natural reading of single sentences. First, we develop and test an approximate likelihood...

Full-text available
The hypr package in R provides the researcher with a straightforward interface to generate contrast matrices from research hypotheses and the reverse. It can be used to derive contrast matrices for custom research hypotheses and as an instructional tool to understand what research hypotheses a given contrast matrix tests. We previously reviewed the...

In eye-movement control during reading, advanced process-oriented models have been developed to reproduce behavioral data. So far, model complexity and numbers of model parameter prevented (i) rigorous statistical inference and (ii) modeling of interindividual differences. Here, we propose a Bayesian approach to both problems for one representative...

Process-oriented theories of cognition must be evaluated against time-ordered observations. Here we present a representative example for data assimilation of the SWIFT model, a dynamical model of the control of spatial fixation position and fixation duration during reading. First, we develop and test an approximate likelihood function of the model,...
Article
Masson and Kliegl (Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 39, 898-914, 2013) reported evidence that the nature of the target stimulus on the previous trial of a lexical decision task modulates the effects of independent variables on the current trial, including additive versus interactive effects of word frequency and...
