[!IMPORTANT!] The first lecture will be on 06.10 (HS A, NIG), if possible. There will be NO lecture on 07.10.

[!IMPORTANT!] If possible, we will meet in person in the seminar room for the very first session (will be communicated via email). All other lectures will take place largely online: we meet virtually at the respective times using a video conference tool (will be communicated via email). These sessions will be live and will be recorded for future revisits if nobody objects.

[Good-to-Know] This TEWA is an extension of the award-winning* course BayesCog (https://github.com/lei-zhang/BayesCog_Wien ). Please check out the course contents to see if you are interested, before signing up the course.

[Language] This course will be taught in English.

[Prerequisite] Basic knowledge of R is a plus (see below)! If you indeed know nothing about R, you are more than encouraged to check out this article: http://shorturl.at/qrHIP

*This course was awarded a SIPS commendation (Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science) in 2020.

Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

[AIMS]
Computational modeling and mathematical modeling provide an insightful quantitative framework that allows researchers to inspect latent processes and to understand hidden mechanisms. Hence, cognitive modeling has gained increasing attention in many areas of cognitive science and neuroscience. One illustration of this trend is the growing popularity of Bayesian approaches to cognitive modeling.

To this aim, this course teaches the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to perform, evaluate and interpret Bayesian modeling analyses. Target group is students that plan or already started a master's or doctoral thesis using computational modeling.

[CONTENT]
This course is dedicated to introducing students to the basic knowledge of Bayesian statistics as well as basic techniques of Bayesian cognitive modeling. We will use R/RStudio and a newly developed statistical computing language - Stan (mc-stan.org) to perform Bayesian analyses, ranging from simple binomial model and linear regression model to more complex hierarchical models. Time will be allocated for both theoretical and practical parts.

During the current situation, practical sessions will take place in two ways. (a) self-pace learning on a online learning platform (e.g., datacamp.com); (b) small group (<=5 people) tutorial sessions with the lecturer.

Throughout the course, students are asked to (a) actively participate in discussions, (b) complete designated tutorial sessions on the selected online learning platform (e.g., datacamp.com).

[METHODS]
Oral presentations by lecturer, in-class (online) participation, paper review, regular programming tutorials, brief demonstration of running Stan on High Performance Computing (HPC) Clusters.
