Tools

Methods for studying and modeling human cognition

Software


manco-dev - A python-based GUI for semi-manual spell-correction and word processing.



memnet - R package offering efficient implementations of network science tools to facilitate research into human (semantic) memory containing, in its current version, methods to infer networks from verbal fluency data, network growth models, (switcher-) random walk processes, and tools to analyze and visualize networks. To deliver maximum performance the majority of the code is written in C++. vignette, dev

cstab - R Package for the selection of the number of clusters via normalized clustering instability and other methods. web, dev

mousetrap - R package for the analysis of mouse movements in computerized experiments, a method becoming increasingly popular in the cognitive sciences. The mousetrap package offers functions for importing, preprocessing, analyzing, aggregating, and visualizing mouse-tracking data. article, dev

choicepp-dev - R development package for the analysis and high-performance simulation of risk decision making, including, e.g., models of Cumulative Prospect Theory, Decisions from Experience, Heuristics.

spreadr-dev - R development package for the simulation of the spreading of activation among nodes in a network.
