Bayesian analysis toolbox for delay discounting, version 1.3

Posterior predictive checks The toolbox now calculates 2 measures of “goodness of fit” of the models. This is a useful quantitative reassurance that the models describe the participant discounting behaviour better than chance. In turn, this is important when we come to deciding which (if any) data files we should exclude. You can go and […]

Bayesian analysis toolbox for delay discounting, version 1.2

I’ve just released Version 1.2 of the toolbox ‘Bayesian analysis toolbox for delay discounting.’ The main feature of this release was the addition of new models. For example, you can now estimate discount rates (ignoring the magnitude effect). So you can obtain estimates of the discount rate k, which is very useful if your primary […]

Hierarchical Bayesian estimation and hypothesis testing for delay discounting tasks

I am happy to announce my 3rd paper of the year, accepted for publication in Behavior Research Methods. Following my initial foray into writing review papers (2 earlier this year), this is my first methods paper, and also my first contribution to higher-level decision making.

Where to publish Decision Making research

Some of my research has taken (and will continue to take) a decision making approach to low-level tasks in visual perception and visual attention. Recently however I have been working on some higher level decision making tasks and so I’ve been scoping out target journals and conferences. In this post I provide a brief list of suitable journals.
