Welcome to the Laboratory for Research in Reasoning and Decision Making! We are housed in the Department of Psychology at the University of Waterloo in Canada. The research conducted in our lab spans several areas in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience. Recently, our work has predominantly focused on the interplay between intuitive and analytic processes supporting complex Reasoning and Decision Making. These decisions may involve analogical, deductive, or probabilistic information. Our lab has also extended our lines of inquiry to look at the role of intuitive and analytic processes in real world domains, such as creativity, moral judgments, religious beliefs, and technology use.
