The aim of the study reported here was to develop a model that can simulate the changes in human behaviour in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. To achieve this, a second-order adaptive social network model was designed integrating mental network models for each person. The model is based on adaptation principles such as the first-order Hebbian learning adaptation principle and the second-order 'adaptation accelerates with increasing exposure' adaptation principle.
