ONLINE – Applied Micro Workshop – George Loewenstein, “Hedonics and Consequences of Attention Allocation”

— filed under:

George Loewenstein: “Hedonics and Consequences of Attention Allocation” In this presentation I will discuss a variety of papers dealing with the problem of attention allocation. In the first half of the seminar, I will present a paper, with Zach Wojtowicz and Nick Chater, proposing a functional theory of boredom (and flow) which proposes that these motivational hedonic states exists to direct attention – a scarce cognitive resource – more efficiently. In the second part of the presentation, I will discuss a wide range of evidence showing that people not only seek out or avoid information, but also direct their attention, in ways guided by hedonic considerations.
