    • Dopamine and Risk Choices in Different Domains: Findings Among Series Tournament Bridge Players 

      Zeckhauser, Richard Jay; Rand, David Gertler; Wernerfelt, Nils Christian; Garcia, Justin; Lum, Koji; Dreber-Almenberg, Anna (2010)
      Individuals differ significantly in their willingness to take risks, partly due to genetic differences. We explore how risk taking behavior correlates with different versions of the dopamine receptor D4 gene (DRD4). We ...

      Dreber-Almenberg, Anna; Rand, David Gertler; Wernerfelt, Nils Christian; Garcia, Justin R.; Lum, J. Koji; Zeckhauser, Richard Jay (Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, 2010)
      Individuals differ significantly in their willingness to take risks, partly due to genetic differences. We explore how risk taking behavior correlates with different versions of the dopamine receptor D4 gene (DRD4). We ...
    • The Dopamine Receptor D4 Gene (DRD4) and Self-Reported Risk Taking in the Economic Domain 

      Dreber, Anna; Rand, David Gertler; Wernerfelt, Nils Christian; Garcia, Justin; Lum, J. Koji; Zeckhauser, Richard Jay (John F. Kennedy School for Government, Harvard University, 2011)
      Background: Recent evidence suggests that individual variation in risk taking is partly due to genetic factors. Methodology/Principal Findings: We explore how self-reported risk taking in different domains correlates with ...
    • The Online Laboratory: Conducting Experiments in a Real Labor Market 

      Horton, John Joseph; Rand, David Gertler; Zeckhauser, Richard Jay (John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, 2010)
      Online labor markets have great potential as platforms for conducting experiments, as they provide immediate access to a large and diverse subject pool and allow researchers to conduct randomized controlled trials. We argue ...
