# bayesian inference cognitive psychology

Morey, R. D., Rouder, J. N., Verhagen, A. J., & Wagenmakers, E. J. Social scientists estimate model parameters in a wide variety of settings. By the sum rule, P(a ≤ 81) = P(a < 81) + P(a = 81), which simplifies to P(a ≤ 81) = P(a < 81) + 0. At any point, readers more interested in the bigger picture than the technical details can safely skip the equations and focus on the examples and discussion. (this issue). In most of our present examples there has been only a single quantity of interest—in order to help keep the examples simple and easy to follow. MA: Academic Press. 0.Footnote 15 Thus, when n is large the Bayes factor will indicate decisive relative support in favor of \(\mathcal {H}_{0}\) over \(\mathcal {H}_{1}\); at the same time, however, the absolute predictive performance of \(\mathcal {H}_{0}\) depends crucially on If I have reservations about whether a basilisk even exists, it does not help for you to give me an estimate for the length of the creature’s tail! As mentioned above, the Bayes factor is inherently comparative: it weighs the support for one model against that of another. ⒸBrian Clayton, used with permission. Morey, R D, Romeijn, J W, & Rouder, J N (2016). Moreover, even high-powered experiments can yield completely uninformative results (Wagenmakers, Verhagen, & Ly, 2016). The default one-sided Bayes factor is visualized by the ratio between the prior and posterior ordinate at ρ = 0 and equals 12.61 in favor of the alternative hypothesis over the null hypothesis. Furthermore, in cases of model comparison between a “point null” (i.e., an hypothesis that, like our \(\mathcal {M}_{0}\), involves a prior point mass on some parameter) and an alternative with a continuous prior for the parameter, one can rewrite the odds form of Bayes’ Rule from Eq. An increase in sample size will generally reduce the need for statistical inference: with large samples, the signal-to-noise ratio often becomes so high that the data pass Berkson’s interocular traumatic test. In the last resort, if this interpretation is rejected, there is no escape from the admission that anew parameter may be needed for every observation, and then all combination of observations is meaningless, and the only valid presentation of data is amere catalogue without any summaries at all.” (Jeffreys 1961, pp. A warning to the uninitiated reader: some of the objections and counterarguments may be difficult to understand from a superficial reading alone; trained statisticians and philosophers have debated these issues for many decades, without much resolution in sight. ,D Consider the use of hierarchical nonlinear process models in cognitive psychology. Journal of the American Statistical Association, 90, 773–795. Fitts, D. A. Jeffreys’s contribution to modern statistical thought. 0, we can write \(P(X|\mathcal {M}_{0}) = P(X|\theta _{0})\). 2,…,A Recent computational developments have made the computation of Bayes factors more tractable, especially for common scenarios (Wagenmakers, Love, et al., this issue; Wagenmakers, Marsman, this issue). Tactical note on the relation between scientific and statistical hypotheses. The hypotheses are well-defined if they make a specific prediction about the probability of each experimental outcome X through the likelihood functions Because of the subjective nature of the prior model odds, the emphasis of Bayesian hypothesis testing is on the amount by which the data shift one’s beliefs, that is, on the Bayes factor. The first scenario always yields 100% accuracy and the second scenario yields 50% accuracy. n Technometrics, 3, 407–410. As illustrated below, the problems with p values are not a reason to abandon hypothesis testing – they are a reason to abandon p values. Lee, M D, & Wagenmakers, E-J (2013). 2 = 100 house-elves, and obtains WIQ scores of M An overly complex model mistakes noise for signal, tailoring its parameters to data patterns that are idiosyncratic and nonrepeatable. Assume that, conditional on the angle of the bent coin, the tosses are independent. (Simonsohn 2015a).Footnote 17 In other words, Bayes factors can be “hacked” too, just like p values. Thus, when Scamander reports that there is a 99.70% probability that μ lies between 42 and positive infinity hours, he is reporting a 99.70% credible interval. However, the p value is not able to make the distinction, and in either of the above scenarios one may obtain p = .20. Philosophical Magazine, 42, 369–390. Note that in these examples, the parameter estimation question presupposes that the effect exists, whereas the hypothesis testing question addresses whether that supposition is warranted in the first place. A default Bayes factor analysis by Wagenmakers, Wetzels, Borsboom, and van der Maas (2011) showed that the evidence was not compelling and in many cases even supported \(\mathcal {H}_{0}\). After seeing the data, the probability λ is less than 10 decreased to 26.2%. Psychological Methods, 10, 477–493. Consider two models, \(\mathcal {H}_{0}\) and \(\mathcal {H}_{1}\), and two observations, y = (y In Bayesian inference the choice of likelihood is important because, as we have seen in the estimation examples above, with even moderate samples sizes the likelihood quickly begins to dominate the prior densities. Each ball travels down the central tube until it arrives at the T-junction, where it takes either the left or the right tube with equal probability, where the final outcome is registered as − 1 and + 1, respectively. Dienes, Z. Journal of Mathematical Psychology, 72, 19–32. Nature Reviews Neuroscience, 14, 1–12. Edwards, A. W. F. (1992). A suggested exercise to test understanding and gain familiarity with the rules is to construct the equivalent path diagram (i.e., that in which the joint probabilities are identical) starting on the left with a fork that depends on the event B instead of A. is shown in Table 1, which tabulates the probabilities of all the joint events found through Fig. Any statistical paradigm that cannot incorporate such knowledge seems overly restrictive and incomplete. Outline of a theory of statistical estimation based on the classical theory of probability. Ly, A., Verhagen, A. J., & Wagenmakers, E. J. After reading the story, participants were asked to provide the probability of several statements, including the following two: “Linda is a bank teller and is active in the feminist movement. $$, \(P(D_{L}|\mathcal {M},D_{S})=P(D_{L}|\mathcal {M})\), \(P(D_{L}|\neg \mathcal {M},D_{S})=P(D_{L}|\neg \mathcal {M})\), $$\begin{array}{@{}rcl@{}} P(\mathcal{M}|D_{S}, D_{L}) \\ &=& \frac{P(\mathcal{M}|D_{S})P(D_{L}|\mathcal{M})}{P(\mathcal{M}|D_{S})P(D_{L}|\mathcal{M}) + P(\neg \mathcal{M}|D_{S})P(D_{L}|\neg \mathcal{M})} \\ &=& \frac{.047 \times .99}{.047 \times .99 + .953\times .02} \approx .71, \end{array} $$, \(P(D_{S},D_{L}|\mathcal {M}) = P(D_{S} | \mathcal {M}) \times P(D_{L} | \mathcal {M})\), $$P(\mathcal{M}_{G}|D_{S},S_{E}) = \frac{P(\mathcal{M}_{G})P(D_{S},S_{E}|\mathcal{M}_{G})}{P(D_{S},S_{E})} $$, $$P(\mathcal{M}_{G}|D_{S},S_{E}) = \frac{P(\mathcal{M}_{G})P(S_{E}|\mathcal{M}_{G})P(D_{S}|S_{E},\mathcal{M}_{G})}{P(D_{S},S_{E})}.$$, \(P(D_{S}|S_{E},\mathcal {M}_{G}) = P(D_{S}|\mathcal {M}_{G})\), $$\begin{array}{@{}rcl@{}} P(\mathcal{M}_{G}|D_{S},S_{E}) &=& \frac{P(\mathcal{M}_{G})P(S_{E}|\mathcal{M}_{G})P(D_{S}|\mathcal{M}_{G})}{P(D_{S},S_{E})} \\ & = & \frac{0.25\times 0.05 \times 0.20}{P(D_{S},S_{E})}. Bayesian Analysis, 1, 1–17. E Regardless of model complexity, Bayesian inference features only one estimator: the posterior distribution. Luckily, in this case the Bayes factor is quite easy to calculate with the Savage-Dickey density ratio, like so…, “Now that we have derived the ratio of posterior to prior density, all that remains is to plug in the values of the parameters and to compute the ratio of Gaussian densities at the specified points...”. Part I: Theoretical advantages and practical ramifications. Conditional on the truth of an hypothesis, likelihood functions specify the probability of a given outcome and are usually easiest to interpret in relation to other hypotheses’ likelihoods. e The lines indicate the probability of selecting each element from within the set. Berger, J. O., & Pericchi, L. R. (2001). Cognitive approaches contribute to our understanding of delusions by providing an explanatory framework that extends beyond the personal level to the sub personal level of information-processing systems. These last two models are concealed by Scamander’s original analysis, but his model specification implies a certain probability for the events (μ < 42) and (μ > 42). Finally, it is possible that researchers may agree with the p value critiques, yet are unable to adopt alternative (Bayesian) inferential pro- Goldstein, N. J., Cialdini, R. B., & Griskevicius, V. (2008). On certain fundamental principles of scientific inquiry. Rouder, J N, Morey, R D, Verhagen, J, Province, J M, & Wagenmakers, E-J (2016). Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, 21, 1157–1164. B., Stern, H. S., Dunson, D. B., Vehtari, A., & Rubin, D. B. This is not a frivolous exercise that can be misused to obtain arbitrary results (Lindley 2004). In contrast, the p value is atail-area integral that depends on hypothetical outcomes more extreme than the one observed in the sample at hand. In the overwhelming majority of cases, psychologists are interested in making probabilistic statements about singular events: this theory is either true or not; this effect is either positive or negative; this effect size is probably between x and y; and either this model or the other is more likely given the data. Vehtari, A, & Ojanen, J (2012). This is easily confirmed when we consider the two diagnoses as a joint event (D Students and researchers in experimental psychology and cognitive science, however, have failed to take full advantage of the new and exciting possibilities that the Bayesian approach affords. However, even with a low false alarm rate and a very high correct rejection rate, a null hypothesis rejection may not necessarily provide enough evidence to overcome the low prior probability an alternative hypothesis might have. Relevant subsets are easy to detect in somewhat contrived examples such as the above; however, they also exist in standard inference situations such as the comparison of two means (Buehler & Fedderson 1963). The fact that the Bayes factor can quantify evidence in favor of the null hypothesis can be of considerable substantive importance (e.g., Galliset, 2009; Rouder et al., 2009). They give the correct answer if the question is: If there is nothing to require consideration of some special values of the parameter, what is the probability distribution of that parameter given the observations? And (2) what is \(p(\theta |X,\mathcal {M}_{1})\), the posterior distributionFootnote 13 of under \(\mathcal {M}_{1}\) (i.e., considering the new data X, if ≠ Unfortunately, the Hat was damaged by a stray curse during a violent episode at the School.

Consider Study 6 from Donnellan, Lucas, and Cesario (2015), one of nine replication attempts on the reported phenomenon that lonely people take hotter showers (in order to replace the lack of social warmth with physical warmth; Bargh & Shalev, 2012).

The authors would like to thank J. P. de Ruiter, Stephan Franke, Zita Oravecz, for helpful comments, Brian Clayton for the Illustration, and J. K. Rowling for the Harry Potter universe. The full power of probabilistic inference will come to light when we generalize from discrete events A with probabilities P(A), to continuous parameters a with probability densities p(a).Footnote 6 Probability densities are different from probabilities in many ways. The evidence, he claims, is right there in the data. A simple introduction to Markov chain Monte-Carlo sampling. Similarly, the narrow shaded region on the right extends from 108 to 113 and also has an area of 0.10, meaning that a random member has a 10% probability of falling in that region, By definition, the total area under a probability density function is 1. where capitalized A indicates that the integration is over the entire range of possible values for the parameter that appears at the end—in this case a.

Psychological Methods. Thus, from a Bayesian perspective, context-dependence is recognized and incorporated through an analysis that computes expected utilities for a set of possible actions (Lindley 1985). 2 by the dotted line.Footnote 2 It is possible to specify different models by changing the prior distribution. Note that model averaging is in a sense the flip-side of model selection: In model selection, the identity of the model is central while the model parameters are sometimes seen as nuisance variables to be integrated away. In J. Busemeyer, J. Townsend, Z. J. Wang, & A. Eidels (Eds. w To this end, a concrete example is used to highlight ten practical advantages of Bayesian parameter estimation and Bayesian hypothesis testing over their classical counterparts. Inspired partly by the evidence and partly by the recklessness that follows from years of felix felicis abuse, editor Cuffe decides to publish an elaborate exposé condemning both the Irish quidditch team for cheating and the Ministry of Magic for failing to act on strong evidence of misconduct. and together they decide on three concrete models:Footnote 14. These practical considerations (often left implicit) are formalized by utility (loss) functions in Bayesian decision theory. n This is particularly relevant when the data at hand are obtained from a natural process, and the concepts of “sampling plan” and “experiment” do not apply. (2015). Dienes, Z. Andraszewicz, S., Scheibehenne, B., Rieskamp, J., Grasman, R.P.P.P., Verhagen, A. J., & Wagenmakers, E. J.

Frequentist probability and frequentist statistics. Even though this hides the problem from view, it does not eliminate it, because almost any data set can be divided into arbitrary batches, and the final inference should not depend on the order or method of division.

Since the outcomes of the four coin tosses are assumed independent given , the probability of k successes in any sequence of length N is given by the binomial distribution: \(\binom {N}{k}\,\theta ^{k}(1-\theta )^{N-k}\), where the binomial coefficient \(\binom {N}{k}\) is the number of ways N items can arrange themselves in groups of size k (e.g., four items can be arranged into a group of four exactly one way). Supplemental materials including annotated JASP files are available on the Open Science Framework at https://osf.io/m6bi8/. The referee uses null hypothesis significance testing and therefore considers only the deplorable state of boxer \(\mathcal {H}_{0}\) (i.e., the null hypothesis). For instance, Jeffreys provides aconcrete example of the difference between estimation and testing: “The distinction between problems of estimation and significance arises in biological applications, though Ihave naturally tended to speak mainly of physical ones. Applications to cognitive science and specifically neuroimaging or EEG. We can consider how much probability is contained within smaller sets of values within the range A; for example, when dealing with IQ in the population, we could consider the integral over only the values of a that are less than 81, which would equal the probability that a is less than 81:Footnote 7.

In his monograph “Theory of Probability”, Bayesian pioneer Harold Jeffreys makes a sharp distinction between estimation and testing, discussing each in separate chapters: “In the problems of the last two chapters we were concerned with the estimation of the parameters in a law, the form of the law itself being given. Top: The model space shows the contending models. The principles of Bayesian estimation hold for simple models just as they do for complicated models (e.g., Gelman & Hilll, 2007; Gelman et al., 2014). Students and researchers in experimental psychology and cognitive science, however, have failed to take full advantage of the new and exciting possibilities that the Bayesian approach affords. We now move to some applied examples that illustrate how this simple rule pertains to cases of inference. In Nickell, J. $$, \(p(\mathcal {H}_{1})/p(\mathcal {H}_{0})\), \(p(\mathcal {H}_{1} \mid \text {data}) / p(\mathcal {H}_{0} \mid \text {data})\), \(p(\text {data} \mid \mathcal {H}_{1}) / p(\text {data} \mid \mathcal {H}_{0})\), \(p(y_{1},y_2 \mid \mathcal {H}_{1}) / p(y_{1},y_2 \mid \mathcal {H}_{0})\), \(\text {BF}_{10}(y_{1}) = p(y_{1} \mid \mathcal {H}_{1}) / p(y_{1} \mid \mathcal {H}_{0})\), \(\text {BF}_{10}(y_2 \mid y_{1}) = p(y_2 \mid y_{1}, \mathcal {H}_{1}) / p(y_2 \mid y_{1}, \mathcal {H}_{0})\), \(\mathcal {H}_{0}: \theta = \theta _{0}\), \(\mathcal {H}_{1}: \theta \sim \text {Uniform}(0,\theta _{0})\), \(\mathcal {H}_{1}: \delta \sim \text {Uniform}(-\infty , \infty )\), \(\mathcal {H}_{1}: \delta \sim \text {Uniform}(-10^{100}, 10^{100})\), \(\mathcal {H}_{1}: \delta \sim \text {Cauchy}(0,r)\), http://www.flickr.com/photos/23868780@N00/12559689854/, https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P-value#History, http://www.skeptic.com/insight/history-and-hymans-maxim-part-one/, https://www.causeweb.org/wiki/chance/index.php/Chance_News_104#Tooth_fairy_science, http://datacolada.org/2015/04/09/35-the-default-bayesian-test-is-prejudiced-against-small-effects/, http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2374040, http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/, https://doi.org/10.3758/s13423-017-1343-3. The conditions under which the Savage–Dickey ratio applies are typically met in practice, since they correspond to the natural way one would build nested models for comparison (for a good discussion on the different types of nested models see Consonni & Veronese, 2008, Section 2). However, the use of verbal explanations only suffices to gain a superficial understanding of the underlying ideas and implications, so we provide mathematical formulas for those readers who are interested in a deeper appreciation.

In realistic settings each of several people observe each of several items, but each person-item combination is unique. 2nd edn., (Vol. Lindley, D. V. (2000). (1997). Probability, too, if regarded as something endowed with some kind of objective existence, is no less a misleading misconception, an illusory attempt to exteriorize or materialize our true probabilistic beliefs” (De Finetti 1974, p. x).

In contrast, evidence is a post-experimental concept, taking into account only the data set that was actually obtained (Wagenmakers et al. Computational Statistics & Data Analysis, 54, 3269–3288.

Despite their surface differences, all such models obey the same conceptual principles, and parameter estimation is merely amatter of “turning the Bayesian handle”: “What is the principal distinction between Bayesian and classical statistics?
