Module prerequisites: 
Module outline:This module introduces students to the basics of programming for cognitive and decision science. It will be made up of two main components: (1) Designing and programming simple laboratory experiments; (2) Computational modelling and simulation. The course will involve both theoretical and practical work. Students will program their own cognitive science experiments, and learn how to build simple computational models and run simulations. These practical projects will be tied in with the empirical and theoretical work covered in other modules (e.g., judgment and decision-making; knowledge, learning and inference).
