Welcome to the CAIDe Lab at the University of Oregon! The Cognitive and Affective Influences in Decision making (CAIDe) Lab focuses on the affective and cognitive mechanisms that underlie decision making. Ellen Peters is the Lab Director and Brittany Shoots-Reinhard is the Associate Director. We are currently particularly interested in numeric competencies and the processing of numeric and non-numeric sources of information, as well as evidence-based communication techniques to facilitate judgment and choice. Although we often conduct hypothetical studies in the lab, we also get out in the “real world” and study the generalization of our theories to health, environmental, and economic judgments and decisions.
