Artificial Neural Network

Move your mouse over the nodes to activate them. Activation will spread gradually to connected nodes.

Some of My On-Line Demonstrations
for educational purposes
Flash / ActionScript
These are programs I've written in Macromedia's Flash MX. You will need the Flash Player plug-in to view these experiments and applications.

One-Dimensional Cellular Automata
Simulates a simple cellular automata model as an illustration of the way in which simple rules can generate complexity, both chaotic and patterned. This particular application allows you to chose among several updating rules.

Simulation of Nowak and Vallacher's Self-System
This application provides a simulation of Nowak and Vallacher's self-system. In short, this program illustrates the ways in which the dynamics among an interconnected system of agents can create stable islands of cohesion within a representational network. This simulation employs two-dimensional cellular automata, and is implemented using isometrics.

Simple Spreading Activation Neural Network
A simple eight-node system of interconnected neurons. Place your mouse pointer over a neuron/node in order to activate it. As the neuron becomes more active, it passes its activation on to connected neurons. Eventually, the activation will spread throughout the entire system.

Necker Cube Example: Illustration of Constraint Satisfaction Dynamics in a Simple Neural Network
Simulates a simple artificial neural network that represents one of two interpretations of the Necker cube. With 16 nodes, there are 2^16 possible states in which the network could settle. However, given the constraints in the system (i.e., the pattern of connections between nodes), the system reliably settles into one of two states, corresponding to different interpretations of the cube. (Example from Rumelhart, Smolensky, McClelland, & Hinton, 1983)

Aggregation Dynamics
Each agent in this system behaves according to three simple rules: (a) move around until you're near an agent of similar color, (b) when you find someone of the same color, settle down, and (c) if you run into someone of a different color, move around. These simple individual-level rules produce patterns of segregation at a global level.

Structural Equation Modeling
This application is designed to allow the user to derive the covariance/correlation matrix predicted by a system of linear equations. In LISREL fashion, the user fills in the parameter values of the causal weights and the correlations among the exogenous (i.e., independent) variables. Once these theoretical parameters are entered, the program derives the correlation matrix implied by those parameters. This is a very useful tool for trying to determine what kinds of quantitative predictions are entailed by different theoretical models.

Multiple Regression
This application is designed to allow the user to enter his or her variables into a spead sheet and then analyze the data using some basic statistics (e.g., means, standard deviations, and correlations). The program also allows the user to specify a linear regression model; the program will estimate the regression weights and compute the r-squared of the model. The program will also create bivariate scatterplots.

Self-Scoring Adult Attachment Style Questionnaire (CRQ/ECR-R)
A Flash based questionnaire designed to assess variations in adult attachment style (see Fraley, Waller, & Brennan, 2000). After you've answered the 36 questions, the program will calculate your attachment style and explain some of the basics of attachment theory.

Applications in CGI / Perl

Self-Scoring Adult Attachment Questionnaire (CRQ/ECR-R)
Assesses adult attachment security toward a romantic partner using the Experiences in Close Relationships-Revised questionnaire (Fraley, Waller, & Brennan, 2000).

Relationship Structures
Assesses a person's attachment security in five relationships, and provides a principal components analysis of the within-person correlation matrix.

Descriptive Statistics Calculator
Can be used to find the mean and standard deviation of a set of scores.

Correlation Calculator
Can be used to find the mean and standard deviation of two variables, as well as the correlation and covariance between them.

On-line Personality Tests and Quizes
This web site, yourPersonality.net, contains a number of on-line personality tests that I've created. Have fun!
