Herbert Simon's Decision-Making Approach: Investigation of Cognitive Processes in Experts
Herbert Simon's research endeavor aimed to understand the processes that participate in human decision making. However, despite his effort to investigate this question, his work did not have theExpand
The Relationship Between Personal Financial Wellness and Financial Wellbeing: A Structural Equation Modelling Approach
We examined the construct of financial wellness and its relationship to personal wellbeing, with a focus on the role of financial literacy. Gender comparisons are made using a structural equationExpand

Expertise modulates the neural basis of context dependent recognition of objects and their relations
Recognition of objects and their relations is necessary for orienting in real life. We examined cognitive processes related to recognition of objects, their relations, and the patterns they form byExpand
