Modeling individual differences in free recall

Building off of, and incorporating, my previous work on individual differences in memory dynamics (as measured by a large-scale free-recall experiment known as PEERS), I am currently starting to work with the CML’s model of memory and temporal context known as CMR, the Context Maintenance and Retrieval model.

Generally, along with Dr. Karl Healey, I am working on fitting the model to each individual PEERS subject using a genetic algorithm. We will then examine the best-fit parameters for each subject for correlation with other behavioral measures and with the four factors discovered before. We will also see if any of the model parameters, or some combination thereof, are strongly predictive of general intelligence.
