A cognitive approach to individual learning: some experimental results 1

By Marco Novarese, Salvatore Rizzello and Università Del Piemonte Orientale (italy


Abstract: This study describe an experiment on individual learning in the domain of cognitive economics. The authors ’ main goal is to observe and to describe how subjects elaborate rules and regularities in problem solving. Involved subjects are asked to choose between different scores related to an evaluation of some hypothetical exams. The game is repeated a wide number of times, sufficient to permit the emergence of accurately observable results. A particular software has been developed to support the experiment. Results seem to show that subjects elaborate coherent rules in a pathdependent way; they manifest a tendency to consolidate these rules also when they are aware that they are wrong; and, at the same time, they exhibit an opposite predisposition not to confirm some rights rules

Topics: Experimental economics, cognitive economics, path-dependence, satisficing
