    • The Allocation of Time in Decision-Making 

      Chabris, Christopher F; Laibson, David I.; Morris, Carrie L.; Schuldt, Jonathan P.; Taubinsky, Dmitry (Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press, 2009)
      We study the allocation of time across decision problems. If a decision-maker (1) has noisy estimates of value, (2) improves those estimates the longer he or she analyzes a choice problem, and (3) allocates time optimally, ...
    • Bringing in the Experts: How Team Composition and Collaborative Planning Jointly Shape Analytic Effectiveness 

      Woolley, Anita Williams; Gerbasi, Margaret E.; Chabris, Christopher; Kosslyn, Stephen; Hackman, J. Richard (Sage Periodicals Press, 2008)
      This study investigates the separate and joint effects of the inclusion of experts and collaborative planning on the performance of analytic teams. Teams either did or did not include members with expert-level task-relevant ...
    • Capturing Specific Abilities as a Window into Human Individuality: The Example of Face Recognition 

      Wilmer, Jeremy Bennet; Germine, Laura Thi; Chabris, Christopher; Chatterjee, Garga; Gerbasi, Margaret E; Nakayama, Ken (Taylor & Francis, 2012)
      Proper characterization of each individual's unique pattern of strengths and weaknesses requires good measures of diverse abilities. Here, we advocate combining our growing understanding of neural and cognitive mechanisms ...
    • General Intelligence in Another Primate: Individual Differences across Cognitive Task Performance in a New World Monkey (Saguinus Oedipus) 

      Tsao, Fritz; Banerjee, Konika; Chabris, Christopher F; Johnson, Valen E.; Lee, James J.; Tsao; Hauser, Marc David (Public Library of Science, 2009)
      Background: Individual differences in human cognitive abilities show consistently positive correlations across diverse domains, providing the basis for the trait of “general intelligence” (g). At present, little is known ...

(American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2013)
      A genome-wide association study (GWAS) of educational attainment was conducted in a discovery sample of 101,069 individuals and a replication sample of 25,490. Three independent single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are ...
    • Receptive Field Characteristics That Allow Parietal Lobe Neurons to Encode Spatial Properties of Visual Input: A Computational Analysis 

      O'Reilly, Randall C.; Kosslyn, Stephen Michael; Marsolek, Chad J.; Chabris, Christopher F (Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press, 1990)
      A subset of visually sensitive neurons in the parietal lobe apparently can encode the locations of stimuli, whereas visually sensitive neurons in the inferotemporal cortex (area IT) cannot. This finding is puzzling because ...
