Darryl Schneider’s work addresses cognitive control focusing on task switching. His research seeks to understand cognitive control in terms of basic psychological processes. His models interpret task switching as a memory retrieval problem. Schneider implements the retrieval process as a random walk and shows how it can account for switch costs, reductions in switch costs as cue-to-target interval increases, and a variety of congruency effects. He is currently working on a theory that puts it all together.
