This is the final report for a project on the further development and validation of the EPIC cognitive architecture for modeling human cognition and performance in the auditory and visual realm. The architecture was extended further to account for sound and speech phenomena, with emphasis on multichannel speech comprehension in a simple command-and-control task for which considerable empirical data is available. Militarily-relevant visual search tasks were modeled in considerable detail for both aggregate and individual performance. Because EPIC relies on simpler and more empirically-based visual mechanisms than current theories, the results are especially valuable for both science and application.
