    • OFFl Models: Novel Schema for Dynamical Modeling of Biological Systems 

      Ogbunugafor, C. Brandon; Robinson, Sean P. (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Flow diagrams are a common tool used to help build and interpret models of dynamical systems, often in biological contexts such as consumer-resource models and similar compartmental models. Typically, their usage is intuitive ...
    • Plans, Habits, and Theory of Mind 

      Gershman, Samuel J.; Gerstenberg, Tobias; Baker, Chris L.; Cushman, Fiery A. (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Human success and even survival depends on our ability to predict what others will do by guessing what they are thinking. If I accelerate, will he yield? If I propose, will she accept? If I confess, will they forgive? ...
    • Poverty, Disease, and the Ecology of Complex Systems 

      Ngonghala, Calistus N.; Pluciński, Mateusz M.; Murray, Megan B.; Farmer, Paul E.; Barrett, Christopher B.; Keenan, Donald C.; Bonds, Matthew H. (Public Library of Science, 2014)
      Understanding why some human populations remain persistently poor remains a significant challenge for both the social and natural sciences. The extremely poor are generally reliant on their immediate natural resource base ...
    • When Does Model-Based Control Pay Off? 

      Kool, Wouter; Cushman, Fiery A.; Gershman, Samuel J. (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Many accounts of decision making and reinforcement learning posit the existence of two distinct systems that control choice: a fast, automatic system and a slow, deliberative system. Recent research formalizes this distinction ...
