Contemporary Cognitive Approaches to Decision-Making

AbstractThe study of how people make judgments and decisions began in cognitive science (the primary JDM conference literally was founded as a workshop at the Psychonomics conference). However, over time the area of judgment and decision-making (JDM) has moved apart from its cognitive roots, despite the high overlap in underlying research questions. However, greater interaction between cognitive and JDM research could yield benefits to both from cross-pollination (Bartels and Johnson 2015), including in terms of methods, types of relevant data and underlying questions. This workshop is designed to foster such interaction. The talks will explore productive areas of overlap between cognitive research and judgment and decision-making research.
