% Function used to simulate normative model for SNR change task from
% Barendregt et al., 2022.

function SC_Threshold_Schematic(T,dt,t_i,dg,m,c,R,N)

% Find normative thresholds using dynamic programming:
[theta,~] = SC_Bellmans(T,dt,t_i,dg,m,c,R);
theta = theta(1:(T/5/dt+1)); % Truncate thresholds to avoid numerical artifacts.

% Pre-allocate ideal observer belief trajectories:
y = NaN(N,T/dt+1);
% Simulate ideal observer belief trajectories given by Eq. (8):
for i = 1:N
y(i,1) = 0; k = 1;
while abs(y(i,k)) < theta(k)
k = k+1;
y(i,k) = y(i,k-1)+m(k-1)*dt+sqrt(2*m(k-1)*dt)*randn;
end
% Terminate evidence accumulation when belief crosses threshold:
y(i,k) = sign(y(i,k))*theta(k);
end

% Plot SNR time series:

% Plot belief trajectories and normative thresholds:
