Weekly QUEST Discussion Topics and News, Jan 18th

This week we are excited to have Dr. Robert Patterson lead the discussion. Please see below for a brief summary of the material.

“Human decision making involves two component processes: analytical reasoning, which entails conscious deliberative judgments (system 2), and intuitive decision making, which entails implicit situational pattern recognition (system 1). Recently, in an effort funded by AFOSR that involves stochastic modeling, we have shown that these two component processes likely form a parallel-channel co-activated system. Our research has also suggested that these two component processes may interact via attentional switching: when confronted with a simultaneous dual task, attention seems to switch between the two component processes in a way that weights the processing according to the saliency of the task demands.”
