Project Details


While the influence of incidental emotions on decision making is well established (Lerner et al., 2015), little is known about how they affect information processing. At the same time, a large body of research has analyzed the effects on decision making under uncertainty of receiving new information about choice alternatives. However, this research has largely
abstracted from the decision maker’s emotional state. As a result, there is a gap in empirical
knowledge about how incidental emotions might influence the sensitivity of decisions to
information about prior outcomes. We designed our experiment to help fill this gap.
