Unlocking a new dimension in the speed-accuracy trade-off

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review

Abstract

Why do we sometimes spend too much time on seemingly impossible-to-solve tasks instead of just moving on? Masís et al. provide a new perspective on the speed-accuracy trade-off (SAT), showing that, although prolonging deliberation looks suboptimal in the short run, it is a long-term investment that helps organisms reach proficient performance more rapidly.
