Neutralizing Implicit Association Test (IAT) with MBWA social responsibility


Opportunities in Neuroscience for Future Army Applications

Finally, beliefs can bias a decision maker to adopt what has been

... were implicitly making associations consistent with gender and racial biases.




Consider a basketball coach who must transport his team to a distant city and must choose between flying and driving. If he chooses to drive because he believes he is minimizing the risk to his players, he has made a suboptimal decision. Because flying is statistically safer than driving, he is exposing his players to more risk by driving.  Indeed, purely from the perspective of rational risk management, even if his team were involved in an aviation accident, he would have made the right decision if he had decided to fly.


The Army could do much more than it currently does to study and correct suboptimal decision making using the full range of neuroscience, including the behavioral and systemic levels. Leader training and assessment has not kept pace with advances in the science. Although decision making is critical to the conduct of warfare, no research unit within the Army focuses specifically on assessing or improving decision making by officers or enlisted soldiers at a behavioral or neurophysiological level.


Even high-profile projects such as the Augmented Cognition project (a previous Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) project discussed in Chapter 6) have focused on how to present information rather than on ways to improve decision making per se.


Because we now know that human decision making is predictably suboptimal in many situations, the Army must decide whether to optimize the force along this human dimension or ignore an emerging opportunity. Two classes of suboptimal decision making for which there is abundant recent behavioral literature will illustrate how much is at stake in choosing whether to seize on this new understanding or ignore it.
