Twenty years of retrieval models
Shravan Vasishth (

After Newell wrote his 1973 article, “You can’t play twenty questions
with nature and win”, several important cognitive architectures
emerged for modeling human cognitive processes across a wide range of
phenomena. One of these, ACT-R, has played an important role in the
study of memory processes in sentence processing. In this talk, I
will talk about some important lessons I have learnt over the last 20
years while trying to evaluate ACT-R based computational models of
sentence comprehension. In this connection, I will present some new
results from a recent set of sentence processing studies on Eastern
