ACT‑R Attentional Gate Model

An ACT-R Timing Module Based on the Attentional Gate Model


The ability to estimate the passage of time is clearly critical to many human tasks. Because some tasks which interest the ACT-R community require this capability, it is thus important that ACT-R be able to model this capability. While a temporal module for ACT-R 6.0 already exists, it has some important limitations, or perhaps possible limitations.

Thus, here is a new ACT-R temporal module based on the Attentional Gate Model of Block and Zakay (Block & Zakay, 1996; Zakay & Block, 1997).
