Career Summary

Biography

Guy Hawkins is an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) Fellow in the School of Psychology, University of Newcastle. His research focusses on developing and testing computational and mathematical models of cognitive processes, with a primary interest in decision-making. His research into decision-making ranges from low-level speeded perceptual decisions through to high-level cognition, including statistical reasoning and consumer preferences. 

In his ARC DECRA Fellowship Guy will investigate the decision mechanisms and strategies that people use to select consumer products and service options. This research will provide insight into how people reason with and utilise information to inform their decisions.

From 2014-2016 Guy was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Amsterdam Brain and Cognition Center, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. In this role he used computational and neural methods to investigate the effect of mind wandering on the ability to complete simple tasks. Before moving overseas, Guy was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the School of Psychology at UNSW Australia. In this role he investigated approaches to mitigate judgement biases that people exhibit when reasoning with statistical information.

Guy earned his PhD in 2013 and his Bachelor of Psychology (Honours 1) in 2008, both at the University of Newcastle. In his position at the University of Newcastle he collaborates with fellow mathematical psychology researchers in the Newcastle Cognition Laboratory (for details, see newcl.org) and cognitive neuroscientists in the Functional Neuroimaging Laboratory. He also works with researchers at universities in Australia, USA, Canada, UK, The Netherlands, and Norway.

© 2015 American Psychological Association. Reasoning and inference are well-studied aspects of basic cognition that have been explained as statistically optimal Bayesian inference. Using a simplified experimental design, we conducted quantitative comparisons between Bayesian inference and human inference at the level of individuals. In 3 experiments, with more than 13,000 participants, we asked people for prior and posterior inferences about the probability that 1 of 2 coins would generate certain outcomes. Most participants' inferences were inconsistent with Bayes' rule. Only in the simplest version of the task did the majority of participants adhere to Bayes' rule, but even in that case, there was a significant proportion that failed to do so. The current results highlight the importance of close quantitative comparisons between Bayesian inference and human data at the individual-subject level when evaluating models of cognition.

© 2016 Elsevier Ltd Functional neuroimaging data indicate the dorsal striatum is engaged when people are required to vary the cautiousness of their decisions, by emphasizing the speed or accuracy of responding in laboratory-based decision tasks. However, the functional contribution of the striatum to decision making is unknown. In the current study we tested patients with focal ischemic lesions of the dorsal striatum and matched non-lesion control participants on a speed-accuracy tradeoff (SAT) task. Analysis using a computational model of response selection in a competitive and time-pressured context indicated that the decisions of patients with striatal lesions were less cautious than those of matched controls. This deficit was most prominent when the accuracy of decisions was emphasized. The results are consistent with the hypothesis that the striatum plays an important role in strategically setting response caution, an essential function for flexible behavior.

© 2015, The Author(s). For decades sequential sampling models have successfully accounted for human and monkey decision-making, relying on the standard assumption that decision makers maintain a pre-set decision standard throughout the decision process. Based on the theoretical argument of reward rate maximization, some authors have recently suggested that decision makers become increasingly impatient as time passes and therefore lower their decision standard. Indeed, a number of studies show that computational models with an impatience component provide a good fit to human and monkey decision behavior. However, many of these studies lack quantitative model comparisons and systematic manipulations of rewards. Moreover, the often-cited evidence from single-cell recordings is not unequivocal and complimentary data from human subjects is largely missing. We conclude that, despite some enthusiastic calls for the abandonment of the standard model, the idea of an impatience component has yet to be fully established; we suggest a number of recently developed tools that will help bring the debate to a conclusive settlement.

© 2015 the authors. For nearly 50 years, the dominant account of decision-making holds that noisy information is accumulated until a fixed threshold is crossed. This account has been tested extensively against behavioral and neurophysiological data for decisions about consumer goods, perceptual stimuli, eyewitness testimony, memories, and dozens of other paradigms, with no systematic misfit between model and data. Recently, the standard model has been challenged by alternative accounts that assume that less evidence is required to trigger a decision as time passes. Such ¿collapsing boundaries¿ or ¿urgency signals¿ have gained popularity in some theoretical accounts of neurophysiology. Nevertheless, evidence in favor of these models is mixed, with support coming from only a narrow range of decision paradigms compared with a long history of support from dozens of paradigms for the standard theory. We conducted the first large-scale analysis of data from humans and nonhuman primates across three distinct paradigms using powerful model-selection methods to compare evidence for fixed versus collapsing bounds. Overall, we identified evidence in favor of the standard model with fixed decision boundaries. We further found that evidence for static or dynamic response boundaries may depend on specific paradigms or procedures, such as the extent of task practice. We conclude that the difficulty of selecting between collapsing and fixed bounds models has received insufficient attention in previous research, calling into question some previous results.
