Using mathematics and computing to explore the mind

University of Newcastle School of Psychology's Professor Andrew Heathcote is an explorer, and the terrain he negotiates lies within the human body. Professor Heathcote is a cognitive scientist who uses mathematics and computing as a way of studying and exploring the human mind. 
 
"I'm classified as a mathematical psychologist, but that's not to say I study the way people do math," Professor Heathcote said. "My focus is on understanding mental processes and the way in which they determine our choices."
 
Concentrated on the modelling of how individuals make rapid decisions, Professor Heathcote is among the world's best in the field. A member of the Newcastle Cognition Laboratory, Professor Heathcote is an Australian Research Council Professorial Fellow.  Together with the University of Newcastle's Professor Scott Brown, Professor Heathcote has developed widely adopted response time computational models and statistical measurement techniques that are at the cutting edge of international research on rapid choice. 
 
"My core work is centred on normal and above-average cognition and how it functions, through both theoretical and empirical study," Professor Heathcote said.

Professor Heathcote's studies focus on two fundamental elements – the speed of choice, and which choices are made.

 "I study conflict tasks, where individuals may be misled into doing the wrong thing," Professor Heathcote said.
 
"A good example of this is the 'Simon effect', where if you see a red thing you press with your right finger, and if you see a green thing you press with your left finger.
 
"It seems straight-forward, but if an individual is then presented with something red on the left this can create a problem, because the tendency is already there to press with the left finger. Similarly, if I show green on the right, there is conflict in the decision-making and often an incorrect response is given.
 
"A lot of what I look at is about making quick, not deliberate, choices – having to do so quickly, and numerous times. These are the conflicts of interests."
 
Professor Heathcote says the behavioural data is then analysed in conjunction with neural data recorded through electroencephalography (EEG), which involves electrodes placed on an individual's scalp to measure the brain's electrical potentials. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sheds further light by detailing where things happen in the brain.
 
"We are getting more and more out of converging brain measures, through an emerging area called model-based neuroscience," Professor Heathcote said.
 
"This approach ties together behaviour and brain measure using mathematical or computational cognitive models to understand what the underlying mental operations are."
 
Professor Heathcote and Professor Brown both proposed, and applied, the Ballistic Accumulator (BA) and Linear Ballistic Accumulator (LBA) models of decision processes.

"The LBA has excellent properties that make it practical to use in a wider range of domains, from eye movements to higher level decisions about memory and linguistic knowledge," Professor Heathcote said.
 
 "The LBA model is one of the most used models and is leading the way globally, because it's mathematically traceable."

Professor Heathcote says modelling decision processes has proven instrumental in understanding absolute identification.
 
"Absolute identification involves an individual's ability to say, for example, how long something is, or naming a musical note," Professor Heathcote said.
 
"It's a dead-reckoning of things, which humans are terrible at.  Our SAMBA model – which combines the BA with a model of selective attention – is considered among the best and most comprehensive when it comes to collating data on the topic.
 
"Decision process models have also been crucial in answering questions like 'why are older people slower?'.

"It turns out that elderly people's mental processes generally don't run at a slower rate, as was previously thought. Rather, they require more evidence before making a decision, which means they are often also more accurate."

Career Summary

Biography

I graduated from the University of Tasmania with B.Sc. majoring in Physics and Psychology in 1983 and obtained a 1st Class Honours in Psychology in 1984. After commencing a PhD at University of Tasmania with Professor Don McNicol in 1985 I was awarded a Commonwealth Postgraduate Fellowship. This took me to Queen’s University in Canada to work with Professor Doug Mewhort, where I graduated with a PhD in Psychology in 1990. During 1991 I was a Postdoctoral Fellow with Professor Roger Ratcliff at Northwestern University in Chicago, and in 1992 I returned to Australia to take up a faculty position at the University of Newcastle. Over the next decade I have held a number of Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Projects grants and from 2002-2006 I was Deputy Head and then Head of the School of Psychology at Newcastle.  Subsequently I returned to a teaching, administration and research role, became a full Professor, and founded the Newcastle Cognition Laboratory (www.newcl.org). In 2011 I was awarded a five-year Professorial Fellowship by the ARC, enabling me to pursue my research full time and in 2012 I was elected to the Australian Academy of Social Sciences. My research focuses on human memory and skill acquisition, and on the neural and cognitive processes that enable people to make rapid choices. 

Research Expertise
My research interests span a number of fields in Experimental Psychology and Cognitive Science, including attention, skill acquisition and memory. In all of these domains I have focused on understanding something that humans do frequently every day, making rapid choices. With Scott Brown I have proposed and applied the Ballistic Accumulator (BA) and Linear Ballistic Accumulator (LBA) models. The LBA has excellent psychometric properties that have lead to it being widely applied across domains ranging from eye movements to higher level decisions about memory and linguistic knowledge. My most recent work has focused on developing even more easily applied models and using them as building blocks to understand difficult decisions (e.g., due to conflicting information), decisions about complex information (e.g., about objects with multiple attributes) and complex decisions (e.g., rating confidence in decisions).

Teaching Expertise
From 1992 to 2010 I taught courses in statistics and methodology and cognitive psychology across all undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Since 2011 I have been a research fellow with no teaching load, but I continue to supervise research students at the honours, masters and PhD levels. Recently I have developed an increasing interest in how to teach the Bayesian approach that I believe is the future of statistics for the behavioural sciences and neuroscience.

Administrative Expertise
I have been Deputy Head and Head of the School of Psychology at Newcastle, organised several Australasian Mathematical Psychology and Cognitive Science Conferences. I am presently a member of the Executive of the International Society for Mathematical Psychology.

Event-based prospective memory (PM) requires a deferred action to be performed when a target event is encountered in the future. Individuals are often slower to perform a concurrent ongoing task when they have PM task requirements relative to performing the ongoing task in isolation. Theories differ in their detailed interpretations of this PM cost, but all assume that the PM task shares limited-capacity resources with the ongoing task. In what was interpreted as support of this core assumption, diffusion model fits reported by Boywitt and Rummel (2012) and Horn, Bayen, and Smith (2011) indicated that PM demands reduced the rate of accumulation of evidence about ongoing task choices. We revaluate this support by fitting both the diffusion and linear ballistic accumulator (Brown & Heathcote, 2008) models to these same data sets and 2 new data sets better suited to model fitting. There was little effect of PM demands on evidence accumulation rates, but PM demands consistently increased the evidence required for ongoing task response selection (response thresholds). A further analysis of data reported by Lourenço, White, and Maylor (2013) found that participants differentially adjusted their response thresholds to slow responses associated with stimuli potentially containing PM targets. These findings are consistent with a delay theory account of costs, which contends that individuals slow ongoing task responses to allow more time for PM response selection to occur. Our results call for a fundamental reevaluation of current capacity-sharing theories of PM cost that until now have dominated the PM literature.

Despite the widespread use of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), few studies have addressed scanner effects on performance. The studies that have examined this question show a wide variety of results. In this article we report analyses of three experiments in which participants performed a perceptual decision-making task both in a traditional setting as well as inside an MRI scanner. The results consistently show that response times increase inside the scanner. Error rates also increase, but to a lesser extent. To reveal the underlying mechanisms that drive the behavioral changes when performing a task inside the MRI scanner, the data were analyzed using the linear ballistic accumulator model of decision-making. These analyses show that, in the scanner, participants exhibit a slow down of the motor component of the response and have less attentional focus on the task. However, the balance between focus and motor slowing depends on the specific task requirements.

We present a cognitive process model of response choice and response time performance data that has excellent psychometric properties and may be used in a wide variety of contexts. In the model there is an accumulator associated with each response option. These accumulators have bounds, and the first accumulator to reach its bound determines the response time and response choice. The times at which accumulator reaches its bound is assumed to be lognormally distributed, hence the model is race or minima process among lognormal variables. A¿key property of the model is that it is relatively straightforward to place a wide variety of models on the logarithm of these finishing times including linear models, structural equation models, autoregressive models, growth-curve models, etc. Consequently, the model has excellent statistical and psychometric properties and can be used in a wide range of contexts, from laboratory experiments to high-stakes testing, to assess performance. We provide a Bayesian hierarchical analysis of the model, and illustrate its flexibility with an application in testing and one in lexical decision making, a¿reading skill. © 2014 The Psychometric Society.

Repetitious patterns enable the auditory system to form prediction models specifying the most likely characteristics of subsequent sounds. Pattern deviations elicit mismatch negativity (MMN), the amplitude of which is modulated by the size of the deviation and confidence in the model. Todd et al. (Neuropsychologia 49:3399-3405, 2011; J Neurophysiol 109:99-105, 2013) demonstrated that a multi-timescale sequence reveals a bias that profoundly distorts the impact of local sound statistics on the MMN amplitude. Two sounds alternate roles as repetitious "standard" and rare "deviant" rapidly (every 0.8 min) or slowly (every 2.4 min). The bias manifests as larger MMN to the sound first encountered as deviant in slow compared to fast changing sequences, but no difference for the sound first encountered as a standard. We propose that the bias is due to how Bayesian priors shape filters of sound relevance. By examining the time-course of change in MMN amplitude we show that the bias manifests immediately after roles change but rapidly disappears thereafter. The bias was reflected in the response to deviant sounds only (not in response to standards), consistent with precision estimates extracted from second order patterns modulating gain differentially for the two sounds. Evoked responses to deviants suggest that pattern extraction and reactivation of priors can operate over tens of minutes or longer. Both MMN and deviant responses establish that: (1) priors are defined by the most proximally encountered probability distribution when one exists but; (2) when no prior exists, one is instantiated by sequence onset characteristics; and (3) priors require context interruption to be updated. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media.

Mind wandering is an ubiquitous phenomenon in everyday life. In the cognitive neurosciences, mind wandering has been associated with several distinct neural processes, most notably increased activity in the default mode network (DMN), suppressed activity within the anti-correlated (task-positive) network (ACN), and changes in neuromodulation. By using an integrative multimodal approach combining machine-learning techniques with modeling of latent cognitive processes, we show that mind wandering in humans is characterized by inefficiencies in executive control (task-monitoring) processes. This failure is predicted by a single-trial signature of (co)activations in the DMN, ACN, and neuromodulation, and accompanied by a decreased rate of evidence accumulation and response thresholds in the cognitive model.
