  1. A qualitative investigation of selecting surrogate decision-makers.S. J. L. Edwards, P. Brown, M. A. Twyman, D. Christie & T. Rakow - 2011 - Journal of Medical Ethics 37 (10):601-605.
    Background Empirical studies of surrogate decision-making tend to assume that surrogates should make only a 'substituted judgement'—that is, judge what the patient would want if they were mentally competent. Objectives To explore what people want in a surrogate decision-maker whom they themselves select and to test the assumption that people want their chosen surrogate to make only a substituted judgement. Methods 30 undergraduate students were recruited. They were presented with a hypothetical scenario about their expected loss of mental capacity in (...)

    Self-insight research as (double) model recovery.Tim Rakow - 2014 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 37 (1):37-38.
    Self-insight assessment compares outcomes from two model-recovery exercises: a statistical exercise to infer a judge's (implicit) policy and an elicitation exercise whereby the judge describes his or her (explicit) policy. When these policies are mismatched, limited self-insight is not necessarily implied: Shortcomings in either exercise could be implicated, whereby Newell & Shanks' (N&S's)relevanceorsensitivitycriteria for assessing awareness may not be met. Appropriate self-insight assessment requires that both exercises allow the original processes to be captured.

    Theorize it both ways?Tim Rakow - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (3):425-426.
    Psychologists' lack of methodological uniformity reflects their greater breadth of enquiry than experimental economists. The need for a theoretical understanding of one-shot decisions validates research undertaken without the repetition of trials. Theories tested only with financial incentives may not reliably predict some classes of decision such as those involving health. Undue emphasis on the importance of replication risks the proliferation of theories with limited generalizability.

    If quantum probability = classical probability + bounded cognition; is this good, bad, or unnecessary?Tim Rakow - 2013 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 36 (3):304-305.
    Quantum probability models may supersede existing probabilistic models because they account for behaviour inconsistent with classical probability theory that are attributable to normal limitations of cognition. This intriguing position, however, may overstate weaknesses in classical probability theory by underestimating the role of current knowledge states and may under-employ available knowledge about the limitations of cognitive processes. In addition, flexibility in model specification has risks for the use of quantum probability.
