Thesis

A Computational Model of Event-Based Prospective Memory

Summary

My thesis will focus on examining response times to basic event-based prospective memory tasks with the linear ballistic accumulator model.

Why my research is important

Prospective memory errors are prevalent in everyday life and prospective memory performance is crucial in safety critical workplace contexts such as air traffic control, naval radar tracking and medicine. Understanding the mechanisms underlying PM performance can help predict the circumstances in which PM errors are likely to occur.
