The members of the Memory and Decision Laboratory (aka "MADLAB") in the Department of Cognitive Sciences at the University of California, Irvine build models and do experiments covering a range of topics in higher-order cognition.

Some current and recent projects include:
  • Optimal and human decision-making on bandit problemsStudent Anteater
  • Bayesian accounts of reconstructive memory
  • Sequential sampling models of human decision-making
  • Bayesian graphical modeling methods
  • Topic models for extracting meaning from text
  • Learning representations from feature generation and similarity-rating data
  • Identifying contaminants in experimental data using Bayesian mixture modeling
  • Modeling individual differences in category learning
