1.) Damasio article on sys1 / sys2 formulation and gaming. – Deciding advantageously in a complex situation is thought to require overt reasoning on declarative knowledge, namely, on facts pertaining to premises, options for action, and outcomes of actions that embody the pertinent previous experience. An alternative possibility was investigated: that overt reasoning is preceded by a nonconscious biasing step that uses neural systems other than those that support declarative knowledge… suggest that, in normal individuals, nonconscious biases guide behavior before conscious knowledge does. Without the help of such biases, overt knowledge may be insufficient to ensure advantageous behavior.
2.)

In practice, robust decision making may also include the need for making rapid decisions under conditions of data overload, time pressure, high risk and high stakes, and ill defined or multiple goals
