Abstract:

The goal of this research has been to develop a new production rule model of cognition which a is an extension of the ACT theory Anderson, 1983 and b incorporates the insights of the rational analysis of cognition Anderson, 1990. A new computer simulation model, ACT-R, has been completed which achieves this goal. It has been implemented in Mac LISP and runs on Macintosh computers. We have distributed it to a number of sites and are actively supporting its use. In addition we have performed a series of experiments studying its application to navigation in an artificial environment, to the Tower of Hanoi task, and to the results from a number of skill acquisition studies.
