Eligibility traces in human reinforcement learning

People involved in the project


We are modelling the behaviour of people in an interesting economic decision task designed by Montague & Berns (2002). In this task subjects have to maximize the height of the red reward bar by pressing buttons A or B. The height of the bar depends on subject's choices, but the subjects do not know the rules, and have to figure out themselves how to respond in order to maximize the height of the reward bar. You can play this task yourself in the applet below.
