    Leave-One-Trial-Out, LOTO, a general approach to link single-trial parameters of cognitive models to neural data

    Sebastian Gluth, Nachshon Meiran
    Leave-One-Trial-Out (LOTO) is a general, efficient and easily implementable approach for inferring trial-by-trial measures of computational model parameters in order to link these measures to neural mechanisms.
