25 March 2022 - Research seminar - Bartosz Janik: Fuzzy trace theory and psychiatric decision making

25 March 2022 - Research seminar - Bartosz Janik: Fuzzy trace theory and psychiatric decision making

We have the pleasure to invite you to another research seminar in the ‘BIOUNCERTAINTY’ research project. This week Bartosz Janik will give a talk: "Fuzzy trace theory and psychiatric decision making". The seminar will take place on Friday, 25th of March at 3:30 p.m. via MS Teams.

Abstract: The aim of fuzzy trace theory is to explain the process of numerical decision-making by assuming that the decision-maker encodes information in two ways (or stages): gist and verbatim representations (Reyna & Brainerd, 1995, 2011). A gist representation is vague and qualitative and builds on verbatim representation, which is precise and quantitative. The structure of the gist representation might be somewhat problematic, but its final form is based on emotions, education, culture, and experience of the decision-maker. There is a lot of evidence suggesting that the expert decision-making process, based on gist representation, is, to a certain extent, different from the layperson decision-making process, and this difference is associated with the different process of creating gist representation of a certain salient verbatim representation in the decision-making context (Reyna et al., 2015). Evidence also suggests that cognitive biases might be explained by using fuzzy trace theory (Reyna, 2008).  In this talk, I would like to analyze the possibility of experimental research on the psychiatric decision-making process using the framework of fuzzy trace theory. The theory has been used to explain the peculiar character of medical decision-making before, but to date, there are no studies focused on psychiatric decision-making (Reyna, 2008).
