Please contribute to this book! One of the great advantages of the wiki format is that many people can contribute to produce something that should hopefully benefit from lots of different perspectives and ideas. O'Reilly & Munakata will retain final editorial control, by reviewing edits that are made, etc. Thus, it is publication-quality material from scientific experts, not anonymous crowd-sourced material as on other wikis (e.g., WikiPedia). If you would like to contribute, smaller changes and additions can be made directly into the text, and larger contributions should be discussed on the associated Discussion page for the relevant Chapter(s). Each person is responsible for updating their own summary of contributions on this page (and contributions are automatically tracked by the wiki as well). For pragmatic purposes, you must yield the copyright to your contributions, with the understanding that everything is being made publicly available through a Creative Commons license as shown below.

Please update your contributions to the text here!

Major Contributors (Authors)

  • Randall C. O'Reilly: primary initial author of text and simulation exercises, and author of prior CECN book upon which this is based.
  • Yuko Munakata: planning of text and editing of rough drafts, and author of prior CECN book upon which this is based.
  • Tom Hazy: wrote first draft of Executive Function Chapter and did major work converting simulation docs to new format.
  • Michael J. Frank: edits/additions to text in various chapters and simulations, and provided the basal ganglia simulation for the Motor and Reinforcement Learning Chapter.

Note: Major contributors are considered co-authors, as reflected in the correct Citation for this book. Additional major contributors will be added to a subsequent edition of the book.

Other Contributors
