To Be Left Or Right? a Nonconscious Base For Bounded Rationality
Although human information-processing involves non-conscious process, studies on bounded rationality have been limited to those issues concerning conscious information-processing. Therefore, we provide evidence of bounded rationality at the non-conscious level by finding that preattentive information-processing improves when hemispheric function is matched regardless of physiological arousal levels. Specifically, we find that recognition memory which affects the human decision-making process improves when verbal stimuli are embedded in the right-hand side of the peripheral visual field, whereas pictorial stimuli are in the left-hand side. Implications from these findings are discussed for further study.
