Selecting target papers for replication

Randomness in the selection process of to-be-replicated target papers is critical for replication success or failure. If target papers are chosen because of the ease of doing a replication, or because replicators doubt the reported findings, …

Inducing Thought Processes: Bringing Process Measures and Cognitive Processes Closer Together

The challenge in inferring cognitive processes from observational data is to correctly align overt behavior with its covert cognitive process. To improve our understanding of the overt–covert mapping in the domain of decision making, we collected …

Process tracing methods in decision making: on growing up in the 70ties

Decision research has experienced a shift from simple algebraic theories of choice to an appreciation of mental processes underlying choice. A variety of process-tracing methods has helped researchers test these process explanations. Here, we provide …

Prospect Theory Reflects Selective Allocation of Attention

There is a disconnect in the literature between analyses of risky choice based on cumulative prospect theory (CPT) and work on predecisional information processing. One likely reason is that for expectation models (e.g., CPT), it is often assumed …

The (in) visibility of psychodiagnosticians' expertise

This study investigates decision making in mental health care. Specifically, it compares the diagnostic decision outcomes (i.e., the quality of diagnoses) and the diagnostic decision process (i.e., pre-decisional information acquisition patterns) of …

Deliberative versus intuitive diagnostic decision

Several studies have demonstrated that in the mental health domain, experience does not always lead to better diagnostic decisions, suggesting that in clinical psychology experience-based intuition might actually not improve performance. The aim of …

The pyeTribe: Simultaneous eyetracking for economic games

The recent introduction of inexpensive eyetrackers has opened up a wealth of opportunities for researchers to study attention in interactive tasks. No software package has previously been available to help researchers exploit those op- portunities. …

Out of sight--out of mind? Information acquisition patterns in risky choice framing

We investigate whether risky choice framing, i.e., the preference of a sure over an equivalent risky option when choosing among gains, and the reverse when choosing among losses, depends on redundancy and density of information available in a task. …

A Lack of Appetite for Information and Computation: Simple Heuristics in Food Choice

The predominant, but largely untested, assumption in research on food choice is that people obey the classic commandments of rational behavior: they carefully look up every piece of relevant information, weight each piece according to subjective …
