Where does fast and frugal cognition stop? The boundary between complex cognition and simple heuristics

  • Thom Baguley (a1) and S. Ian Robertson (a2)
  • Published online: 01 October 2000

What is missing is how this intersects with thinking under even greater uncertainty or ignorance, such as novice problem solving, and with the development of expert cognition.
