One of the problems in the field of cognitive modelling is the fact that mental processes cannot be directly observed. To help us understand what goes on in the human mind, we can use several tools. On the one hand, we have modelling tools like ACT-R to reproduce behavioural data. On the other hand, we can observe brain activity using techniques like functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging and electroencephalography. Combing both sets of tools could greatly enhance our understanding of the human mind. In this paper, we took a first step towards creating a virtual Event Related Potential (ERP) using ACT-R. We investigated the correlation between activity in ACT-R’s modules and a human ERP. In order to do so, we fitted an ACT-R model of the attentional blink effect on the behavioural data of an experiment and compared ACT-R’s activity with the human ERPs found in the experiment.
