Is there an R implementation of the linear ballistic accumulator model or Ratcliff's diffusion model for measuring response time and accuracy?

In the subheading you also mention that you're interested in matlab / python implementations: I've personally used DMAT in matlab at that's a nice package. However, the python based HDDM package may ...

How does TD-learning explain trace conditioning?

See my comment above, but it is possible to assume that B acquires the same reward value as the original reward, so B can then be treated as a reward, which in turn brings A closer to the reward event ...
