Extensible drift diffusion modeling for Python
PyDDM - A drift-diffusion model simulator
PyDDM is a simulator and modeling framework for drift-diffusion models (DDM), with a focus on cognitive neuroscience.
Key features include:
- Models solved numerically using Crank-Nicolson to solve the Fokker-Planck equation (Backward Euler, analytical solutions, and particle simulations also available)
- Arbitrary functions for drift rate, noise, bounds, and initial position distribution
- Arbitrary loss function and fitting method for parameter fitting
- Optional multiprocessor support
- Optional GUI for debugging and gaining an intuition for different models
- Convenient and extensible object oriented API allows building models in a component-wise fashion
- Verified accuracy of simulations using novel program verification techniques
Please note that PyDDM is still beta software so you may experience some glitches or uninformative error messages.
Normally, you can install with:
$ pip install pyddm
If you are in a shared environment (e.g. a cluster), install with:
$ pip install pyddm --user
If installing from source, download the source code, extract, and do:
$ python3 setup.py install
- Python 3.5 or above
- Numpy version 1.9.2 or higher
- Scipy version 0.15.1 or higher
- Paranoid Scientist
- Pathos (optional, for multiprocessing support)
Please report bugs to https://github.com/mwshinn/pyddm/issues. This includes any problems with the documentation. PRs for bugs are greatly appreciated.
Feature requests are currently not being accepted due to limited resources. If you implement a new feature in PyDDM, please do the following before submitting a PR on Github:
- Make sure your code is clean and well commented
- If appropriate, update the official documentation in the docs/ directory
- Ensure there are Paranoid Scientist verification conditions to your code
- Write unit tests and optionally integration tests for your new feature (runtests.sh)
- Ensure all existing tests pass
