Abstract

The concept of inhibition from cognitive neuroscience can inform the development of biologically-inspired cognitive architectures. Here we summarize a few attempts to develop an inhibition mechanism for the ACT-R architecture. The starting point is a model that uses inhibition to account for sequence effects in the Stroop task. This model is improved by adding a more general inhibition mechanism that requires less input from the modeler. Then, the modified model is used to account for backward inhibition in task switching, making a case for model generality and reusability.
