Changing parameter values

Now we can get an intuitive understanding of the learning rate parameter α and the softmax parameter β by changing their values, and seeing how the simulated subject behaves.

Just set the parameters to a different value...

if simulate
     simpars.alpha = % whatever you like between 0 and 1!;
     simpars.beta = % whatever you like as long as it's positive ;
end, and run.

Try this for a range of different parameter values.
  • What can you conclude about the effects of α and β?
