Lael Schooler

Professor, Psychology, College of Arts & Sciences

Faculty Affiliate, Aging Studies Institute


Dr. Schooler investigates simple heuristics — decision strategies that use limited information to make effective decisions in an uncertain world.  Much of his work is informed by the ACT-R theory of cognition that supports the development of computer simulations that make predictions about human behavior and the neural correlates of that behavior.  He uses computer simulations and behavioral experiments to help explain how people make decisions and how they could make better ones.
