Uses, Abuses and Misuses of Computational Models in Classical Conditioning

Alonso, E. & Mondragon, E. ORCID: 0000-0003-4180-1261 (2012). Uses, Abuses and Misuses of Computational Models in Classical Conditioning. Paper presented at the 11th International Conference on Cognitive Modeling, 13-15 Apr 2012, Berlin, Germany.


Classical conditioning is at the heart of most learning phenomena. It is thus essential that we develop accurate models of conditioning; since, psychological models rely heavily in verbal accounts that are necessarily imprecise it has become apparent that the development of computational models is imperious. However, we need to separate the wheat from the chaff. In this paper we review the main uses of the term computational model in conditioning.
