Abstract

This paper presents a computational cognitive model about political positioning inspired on recent insights from neuroscience and psychology. We describe a model that takes into consideration the individual structures of the brain and the environmental influences that may interfere on how a political positioning is shaped in a social media environment. Results also consider the social contagion effect. We use the model to provide simulations of how the political positioning of artificial agents change under different circumstances.
