SCENE, Loch Lomond, Rowardennan,
Glasgow, Scotland, G63 0AW, United Kingdom

Course Overview: This 5-day course will involve a combination of lectures and practical sessions. Students will learn to build and fit custom models for analysing behavioural data using maximum likelihood techniques in R. This flexible approach allows a researcher to a) use a statistical model that directly represents their hypothesis, in cases where standard models are not appropriate and b) better understand how standard statistical models (e.g. GLMs) are fitted, many of which are fitted by maximum likelihood. Students will…
