Tasks for "Decision making and the avoidance of cognitive demand"
The Demand Selection Task (DST) provided in the folder dst_multidecks corresponds to Experiment 3 of Kool, McGuire, Rosen, & Botvinick (2010). The DST provided in the folder dst_math corresponds to Experiment 4 in this paper. This code has been written by Joseph T. McGuire (http://sites.bu.edu/cdlab/).
A copy of MATLAB and Psychtoolbox (http://psychtoolbox.org/) are needed to run this study.
We recommend using this version of the DST, since it minimizes the influence of non-demand-related preferences on the average low-demand choice rate.
