Moves in mind : the psychology of board games by Fernand Gobet( )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 1,235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Board games have long fascinated as mirrors of intelligence, skill, cunning, and wisdom. While board games have been the topic of many scientific studies, and have been studied for more than a century by psychologists, there was until now no single volume summarizing psychological research into board games. This book, which is the first systematic study of psychology and board games, covers topics such as perception, memory, problem solving and decision making, development, intelligence, emotions, motivation, education, and neuroscience. It also briefly summarizes current research in artificial intelligence aiming at developing computers playing board games, and critically discusses how current theories of expertise fare with board games
Problem gambling : cognition, prevention and treatment by Fernand Gobet( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Problem gambling is a perennial issue frequently reported in the media. It is estimated that almost 1% of the adult population in the UK has experienced some form of problem gambling, with similar figures for other developed countries. There are few books that offer an in-depth overview of the research into problem gambling. This volume fills this gap by bringing together international experts to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date resource that describes the state of the art of problem gambling research from the fundamental cognitive processes involved, to preventative methods and the most effective treatments for those for whom problem gambling is a reality

The psychology of chess by Fernand Gobet( )

8 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do you need to be a genius to be good at chess? What does it take to become a Grandmaster? Can computer programmes beat human intuition in gameplay? The Psychology of Chess is an insightful overview of the roles of intelligence, expertise, and human intuition in playing this complex and ancient game. The book explores the idea of 'practice makes perfect', alongside accounts of why men perform better than women in international rankings, and why chess has become synonymous with extreme intelligence as well as madness. When artificial intelligence researchers are increasingly studying chess to develop machine learning, The Psychology of Chess shows us how much it has already taught us about the human mind
SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY IN THE SOCIAL SCIENCES( )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers selected papers exploring issues arising from scientific discovery in the social sciences. It features a range of disciplines including behavioural sciences, computer science, finance, and statistics with an emphasis on philosophy. The first of the three parts examines methods of social scientific discovery. Chapters investigate the nature of causal analysis, philosophical issues around scale development in behavioural science research, imagination in social scientific practice, and relationships between paradigms of inquiry and scientific fraud. The next part considers the practice of social science discovery. Chapters discuss the lack of genuine scientific discovery in finance where hypotheses concern the cheapness of securities, the logic of scientific discovery in macroeconomics, and the nature of that what discovery with the Solidarity movement as a case study. The final part covers formalising theories in social science. Chapters analyse the abstract model theory of institutions as a way of representing the structure of scientific theories, the semi-automatic generation of cognitive science theories, and computational process models in the social sciences. The volume offers a unique perspective on scientific discovery in the social sciences. It will engage scholars and students with a multidisciplinary interest in the philosophy of science and social science

Perception et représentation du mouvement : influences de la verbalisation sur la reconnaissance de mouvements d'escrime en fonction de l'expertise by Elise Defrasne Ait-Said( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is it necessary to verbalize in order to memorize and learn a material? According to the literature examining the influence of verbalizations on learning and memory, the answer to this question depends on the type of material used (conceptual material versus perceptive material) and on the learners' level of expertise. In Study 1, we examined the influence of verbal descriptions on the visual recognition of sequences of fencing movements, with participants of the three levels of expertise (novices, intermediates, experts). In Study 2, we studied the influence of different content of verbal descriptions on the recognition of sequences of fencing movements, according to the level of expertise. The goal of Study 3 was to examine the effect on memory of a trace distinct from a verbal trace: a motor trace. The findings of Study 1 show that verbalizing improves novices' recognition, impairs intermediates' recognition and has no effect on experts' recognition. The results of Study 2 show that the content of verbal descriptions has an effect on memory, according to the participants' level of expertise. The findings of Study 3 show that duplicating the fencing movement, with no feedback, strongly impedes beginners' visual recognition. These findings broaden the verbal overshadowing phenomena to a material distinctly more conceptual than the one classically used in this field of research. They bring strong support to the theoretical hypothesis of interference resulting from a verbal recoding (Schooler, 1990). They also show that an additional motor trace can harm visual recognition of movement sequences
Combining Low-Level Perception and Expectations in Conceptual Learning( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report results from a contract tasking University of Nottingham as follows: The contractor will investigate the interplay between low-level feature extraction and high-level concept formation, using "chunking mechanisms." The model will be presented with pictures of various objects, and will extract the relevant features before using them to build up a discrimination network for classifying novel pictures. The high level chunks acquired by the model will be used to direct eye movements, which in turn will determine what will be learned. Questions of interest will include how robust the model is to current expectations, noisy input (to simulate poor visibility) and varying object orientation. The behavior of the model will be compared to human behavior, e.g., learning to categorize images of planes, object identification from aerial photographs, etc. A successfully implemented model will help predict factors which affect human performance in visual recognition, and suggest support techniques for anticipating and correcting errors
Techniques for Modeling Human Performance in Synthetic Environments: A Supplementary Review( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selected recent developments and promising directions for improving the quality of models of human performance in synthetic environments are summarized, beginning with the potential uses and goals for behavioral models. The focus is on providing more complete performance, better integration of the models with synthetic environments and with each other (reusability), and improved usability of the models. Within this context, relevant, current work related to modeling is reviewed, such as cognitive modeling of emotion, advanced techniques for testing and building models of behavior, new cognitive architectures including hybrid architectures, and agent and Belief, Desires and Intentions (BDI) architectures. A list of projects with high payoff for modeling human performance in synthetic environments is provided as a conclusion

The neural correlates of theory of mind and their role during empathy and the game of chess: A functional magnetic resonance imaging study( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: The neural network associated with theory of mind, empathy and chess is investigated. Results show neural overlap in right TPJ, left STG and posterior cingulate gyrus across all three tasks. Medial frontal and parietal cortex was selectively recruited during the chess task. For novice chess players chess involves mental operations that are involved in inferences about others mental states. Abstract: Chess involves the capacity to reason iteratively about potential intentional choices of an opponent and therefore involves high levels of explicit theory of mind [ToM] (i.e. ability to infer mental states of others) alongside clear, strategic rule-based decision-making. Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used on 12 healthy male novice chess players to identify cortical regions associated with chess, ToM and empathizing. The blood-oxygenation-level-dependent (BOLD) response for chess and empathizing tasks was extracted from each ToM region. Results showed neural overlap between ToM, chess and empathizing tasks in right-hemisphere temporo-parietal junction (TPJ) [BA40], left-hemisphere superior temporal gyrus [BA22] and posterior cingulate gyrus [BA23/31]. TPJ is suggested to underlie the capacity to reason iteratively about another's internal state in a range of tasks. Areas activated by ToM and empathy included right-hemisphere orbitofrontal cortex and bilateral middle temporal gyrus: areas that become active when there is need to inhibit one's own experience when considering the internal state of another and for visual evaluation of action rationality. Results support previous findings, that ToM recruits a neural network with each region sub-serving a supporting role depending on the nature of the task itself. In contrast, a network of cortical regions primarily located within right- and left-hemisphere medial-frontal and parietal cortex, outside the internal representational network, was selectively recruited during the chess task. We hypothesize that in our cohort of novice chess players the strategy was to employ an iterative thinking pattern which in part involved mentalizing processes and recruited core ToM-related regions
