Abigail Wozniak, Notre Dame

Evidence from psychology shows that perceptions of our environment are influenced by the actions we can take in that environment, and handgun access has been shown to increase the likelihood of perceiving others as possessing a handgun. Prof. Wozniak will discuss in-progress work that combines lab experimental approaches from economics and psychology to determine whether handgun access also influences higher order decision-making. The goal of this in-progress research is to determine whether randomized access to a realistic handgun object affects choices when subjects face real (financial) consequences.
