    Managing the Budget: Stock‐Flow Reasoning and the CO2 Accumulation Problem.Ben R. Newell, Arthur Kary, Chris Moore & Cleotilde Gonzalez - 2016 - Topics in Cognitive Science 8 (1):138-159.
    The majority of people show persistent poor performance in reasoning about “stock-flow problems” in the laboratory. An important example is the failure to understand the relationship between the “stock” of CO2 in the atmosphere, the “inflow” via anthropogenic CO2 emissions, and the “outflow” via natural CO2 absorption. This study addresses potential causes of reasoning failures in the CO2 accumulation problem and reports two experiments involving a simple re-framing of the task as managing an analogous financial budget. In Experiment 1 a (...)

    Is Strong Reciprocity Really Strong in the Lab, Let Alone in the Real World?Şule Güney & Ben R. Newell - 2012 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 35 (1):29-29.
    We argue that standard experiments supporting the existence of do not represent many cooperative situations outside the laboratory. More representative experiments that incorporate rather than wealth also do not provide evidence for the impact of strong reciprocity on cooperation in contemporary real-life situations or in evolutionary history, supporting the main conclusions of the target article.

    The Uncertain Status of Bayesian Accounts of Reasoning.Brett K. Hayes & Ben R. Newell - 2011 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 34 (4):201-202.
    Bayesian accounts are currently popular in the field of inductive reasoning. This commentary briefly reviews the limitations of one such account, the Rational Model (Anderson 1991b), in explaining how inferences are made about objects whose category membership is uncertain. These shortcomings are symptomatic of what Jones & Love (J&L) refer to as Bayesian approaches.

    A Quantum of Truth? Querying the Alternative Benchmark for Human Cognition.Ben R. Newell, Don van Ravenzwaaij & Chris Donkin - 2013 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 36 (3):300 - 302.
    We focus on two issues: (1) an unusual, counterintuitive prediction that quantum probability (QP) theory appears to make regarding multiple sequential judgments, and (2) the extent to which QP is an appropriate and comprehensive benchmark for assessing judgment. These issues highlight how QP theory can fall prey to the same problems of arbitrariness that Pothos & Busemeyer (P&B) discuss as plaguing other models.

    What is the Link Between Propositions and Memories?Ben R. Newell - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (2):219-219.
    Mitchell et al. present a lucid and provocative challenge to the claim that links between mental representations are formed automatically. However, the propositional approach they offer requires clearer specification, especially with regard to how propositions and memories interact. A definition of a system would also clarify the debate, as might an alternative technique for assessing task.

    In most decision-making situations, there is a plethora of information potentially available to people. Deciding what information to gather and what to ignore is no small feat. How do decision makers determine in what sequence to collect information and when to stop? In two experiments, we administered a version of the German cities task developed by Gigerenzer and Goldstein (1996), in which participants had to decide which of two cities had the larger population. Decision makers were not provided with the (...)
