Game theory is a toolkit for examining situations where decision makers influence each other. I discuss the nature of game‐theoretic analysis, the history of game theory, why game theory is useful for understanding human psychology, and why game theory has played a key role in the recent explosion of interest in the field of behavioral economics. WIREs Cogni Sci 2011 2 167–173 DOI: 10.1002/wcs.119

Stan Klein

Stan Klein

Dr. Stan Klein’s research revolves around understanding self, memory, and consciousness. Klein argues that the unitary self of everyday experience actually is a multiplicity. For example, within memory, there are various, functionally independent systems of self-knowledge, including semantic personal facts, abstract trait self-knowledge, and episodic narratives.  Another aspect of self is its subjectivity. This form of consciousness interacts with the neurally-based aspects of self to produce the human experience of self.

Dr. Klein believes that we need to move beyond studying memory content and focus on how that content is presented to awareness. He argues that it is the manner in which content is apprehended by awareness that determines whether we experience content as episodic or semantic.
