Most cognitive models are domain-specific, meaning that their scope is restricted to a single type of problem. The human mind, on the other hand, does not work like this -- it is a unified system whose processes are deeply intertwined. In this talk, I present our work on building domain-general computational models and using them to understand human cognition. I start by outlining how meta-learning can be used to construct cognitive models across various domains. In the second half, I summarize our efforts of building a foundation model of human cognition by finetuning large language models on data from psychological experiments.

The nEuro-economics seminar is a monthly seminar series organised by the HRL team. We invite Europe-based early career researchers to speak about their research at the crossroads of neuroscience, psychology and economics.
