Abstract:

We present a new approach using virtual environment scenarios to study decision making in complex tasks. Using simulation techniques we build a bridge between abstract and naturalistic environments to help understand differences in behavior between them. The propose virtual environments provide a methodological tool to examine what aspects of the naturalistic environment drive expert performance.
