Abstract and Keywords

Computational process models are implemented in computer code and run over time to simulate phenomena of interest. In cognitive science the phenomena of interest involve human cognitive processes and performance outcome data. Cognitive stressors are temporary circumstances or environmental stimuli that degrade, interfere with, or otherwise negatively impact cognitive processing. The focus of this chapter is the intersection of the methodology of computational process modeling with the phenomenology of cognitive stressors. Part literature review and part prospective commentary, the chapter provides an opportunity to consider the use of formal modeling and simulation methods to explain and predict human performance precisely when it matters most—when the person’s cognitive system is stressed.

Keywords: computational processes, cognitive modeling, stressors, cognitive engineering, basic research, application
