COGENT Model Archive:
Models developed/explored in Modelling High-Level Cognitive Processes

This page contains links to all models developed and explored in Modelling High-Level Cognitive Processes, a modelling text published by Lawrence Erlbaum Associates in June 2002. The book uses COGENT Version 2.1, and all models below should work with COGENT Version 2.1 or later.

The models from each chapter are presented as a single downloadable COGENT archive. They are given in two formats: the CAR format (COGENT's own non-compressed format), and the TGZ format (a UNIX-derived format that is compressed). If you are using COGENT on Windows, you must use the CAR format. If you are using COGENT on UNIX or Mac OS X you can use either format.

Installing the models

  1. Download the relevant archive and save it in your archive directory (e.g., by right-clicking on the link and selecting "Save Link As..." or "Save Target As..." and then specifying your archive directory as the location of the save command).
  2. Start up COGENT and select "Archives..." from the top menu bar. The downloaded file should appear on the right panel of the archive browser.
  3. Select the file and click on the "<< Extract <<" button.
  4. Close the archive browser and the downloaded archive should appear as a new research programme in COGENT's list of research programmes
