  1. Sensitivity to Sunk Costs Depends on Attention to the Delay.Rebecca Kazinka, Angus W. MacDonald & A. David Redish - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    In the WebSurf task, humans forage for videos paying costs in terms of wait times on a time-limited task. A variant of the task in which demands during the wait time were manipulated revealed the role of attention in susceptibility to sunk costs. Consistent with parallel tasks in rodents, previous studies have found that humans preferred shorter delays, but waited longer for more preferred videos, suggesting that they were treating the delays economically. In an Amazon Mechanical Turk sample, we replicated (...)

    A Sneaking Suspicion: The Semantics of Emotional Beliefs and Delusions.Angus W. MacDonald - 2008 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (6):719-720.
    This commentary challenges Rogers & McClelland (R&M) to use their model to account for delusional belief formation and maintenance. The gradual development of delusions and the nature of disconnectivity in Capgras delusions are used to illustrate the role of emotional salience in delusions. It is not clear how this kind of emotional saliency can be represented within the current architecture.

    Reconciling Schizophrenic Deficits in Top-Down and Bottom-Up Processes: Not Yet.Angus W. MacDonald - 2003 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (1):96-96.
    This commentary challenges the authors to use their computational modeling techniques to support one of their central claims: that schizophrenic deficits in bottom-up (Gestalt-type tasks) and top-down (cognitive control tasks) context processing tasks arise from the same dysfunction. Further clarification about the limits of cognitive coordination would also strengthen the hypothesis.
