Software Simulation and Modeling in Psychology: MATLAB, SPSS, Excel and E-Prime describes all the stages of psychology experimentation, from the manipulation of factors, to statistical analysis, data modeling, and automated stimuli creation. The book shows how software can help automate various stages of the experiment for which operations may quickly become repetitive. For example, it shows how to compile data files (instead of opening files one by one to copy and paste), generate stimuli (instead of drawing one by one in a drawing software), and transform and recode tables of data.
This type of modeling in psychology helps determine if a model fits the data, and also demonstrates that the algorithmic is not only useful, but essential for modeling data.
- Covers the entire process of experimenting, from designing an experiment, to modeling the data
- Shows how software can help automate various stages of the experiment for which operations may quickly become repetitive
- Contains sections on how to compile data files (instead of opening files one by one to copy and paste) and generate stimuli (instead of drawing one by one in a drawing software)

Fabien Mathy is a professor in the department of Psychology at University Côte d'Azur, and researcher at the laboratory Bases, Corpus, Langage of the CNRS. After being head of the Department of Psychology, he is currently appointed director of a doctoral program and head of the Cognitive Science & Computation program at the Maison des Sciences de l'Homme et de la Société Sud-Est in Nice, France. He teaches psychology and cognitive science to show in particular how artificial intelligence and psychology can combine to offer adequate models of cognitive processes. HIs main research interest is the relationship between learning, memory, and intelligence and his current research explores the growth of immediate memory capacity across age. He has been the recipient of two grants from the Agence Nationale de la Recherche and one IDEX (Initiative d'excellence) grant and he has been a fellow of the Psychonomic Society since 2010.

Mustapha Chekaf is a former PhD student of Fabien Mathy, currently assistant professor in the department of Psychology at University Côte d'Azur, and postdoctoral researcher at the laboratory Bases, Corpus, Langage of the CNRS. Mustapha Chekaf and Fabien Mathy have published together three research articles in peer-reviewed journals in cognitive psychology. His current research explores the capacity of immediate memory in adults and the training of working memory based on physical activities.
