Urai AE, de Gee JW, Tsetsos K, Donner TH. (2019) Choice history biases subsequent evidence accumulation. eLife, 8:e46331. By Anne Urai & Tobias H. Donner. To study the mechanisms of decision-making, researchers often treat individual decisions as isolated events. However,
Gender diversity in academia
By Anne Urai & Tobias Donner. Although we’d all like academia to be a true meritocracy, implicit biases shared by all of us create significant hurdles to achieving diversity in our communities. We discussed the data (showing both the extent to
