New publication on cognitive innovation


A paper co-authored by Sabine Pittnauer, titled Observing the creation of new knowledge in the economics laboratory - Do participants discover how to learn from outcome feedback in a dynamic decision problem? has appeared in the November issue of the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization (joint work with Martin Hohnisch).

The paper documents direct observation of cognitive innovation in the lab: A portion of participants in an experiment created a new learning procedure that allowed them to solve a relatively complex dynamic decision problem. In addition to its findings, the paper offers a task that can serve as a workhorse for future experimental research on how to promote cognitive innovation in organizations.

The paper is available at ScienceDirect for free and without any registration or sign-up until November 20, 2023
