A manifesto for cognitive models of problem gambling

Abstract

Research on problem gambling has identified a wealth of phenomena related to the aetiology and maintenance of pathological gambling, its prevalence and risk factors, and has suggested programs and treatments. Remarkably, techniques of systematic formal modelling have rarely been used in the investigation of problem gambling despite their potential. We summarise and assess the current state of the field and highlight the opportunities and the potential impact of cognitive modelling.
