The Cambridge Handbook of Computational Psychology

edited by Ron Sun

published by Cambridge U. Press

see:  http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp? 
isbn=9780521857413

This book is a definitive reference source for the growing,  
increasingly more important, and interdisciplinary field of  
computational cognitive modeling, that is, computational psychology.  
It combines breadth of coverage with definitive statements by leading  
scientists in this field. Research in computational cognitive  
modeling (or, simply, computational psychology) explores the essence  
of cognition and various cognitive functionalities through developing  
detailed, process-based understanding by specifying computational  
mechanisms, structures, and processes. Given the complexity of the  
human mind and its manifestation in behavioral flexibility, process- 
based computational models may be necessary to explicate and  
elucidate the intricate details of the mind. The key to understanding  
cognitive processes is often in fine details. Computational models  
provide algorithmic specificity: detailed, exactly specified, and  
carefully thought-out steps, arranged in precise yet flexible  
sequences. These models provide both conceptual clarity and precision  
at the same time. This book substantiates this approach through  
overviews and many examples.
