- Details: This program supports research on high-order cognitive processes that are responsible for human performance on complex problem solving and decision making tasks. The overall objective is to understand these processes by developing and empirically testing mathematical or computational models of human attention, memory, categorization, reasoning, problem solving, learning and motivation, and decision making. The study of these topics in conditions that involve risk and uncertainty, high workloads, sustained operations, stress, or fatigue is encouraged.
- Keywords: Cognition, cognitive processes, problem solving, decision making, mathematics, mathematical modeling
NB: No deadline: applications accepted continuously
