John E. Staddon

Research Summary:
John Staddon works on evolution, biological and social, and mechanisms of learning. Recent topics are timing and memory, feeding regulation, and successive induction and the ways in which animals, people and society adapt to reward schedules in the lab and in life. Theoretical work involves both analytical and computer-simulation studies of functional and mechanistic models for behavior and economics. Current research is on the psychology, economics and system properties of financial and health markets.
