24 ;;Quote: use an approximate system level description of the mind to help predicate behavior
42 ;;Quote: the Model Human Processor consists of a perceptual system, cognitive system, and motor system; characterize each component by processor cycle time, memory capacity, decay rate, and code type
42+;;Quote: the cycle time for each processor in the Model Human Processor is on the order of a tenth of a second
51 ;;Quote: derive Fitts' Law by assuming that the relative accuracy of movement is constant; the measured time for acquiring a target is within the computed range
86 ;;Quote: much of the complexity of human behavior derives from the complexity of the task
86+;;Quote: the rationality principle: Goals + Task + Operators + Inputs + Knowledge + Process-limits -> Behavior
90 ;;Quote: Card, Moran, and Newell summarized existing psychological knowledge through a simple model of the human processor. They use the model to numerically analyzing human-computer interaction
140 ;;Quote: analyze complex behavior with GOMS: goals to be achieved, operators to do things, methods as procedures, and selection rules for choosing among competing methods
140+;;Quote: a GOMS method is a learned procedure, i.e., a conditional sequence of goals and operators
