What is The Evidence for Quantum Like Interference Effects in Human Judgments and Decision Behavior?

Jerome Busemeyer, Riccardo Franco


This article examines the empirical evidence for interference effects in psychological experiments. It also reviews the competing interpretation of these effects with respect to traditional cognitive models and new quantum cognition models. The conclusion is that quantum theory provides unifying principles for explaining interference effects found in a wide variety of different experimental paradigms, and it provides a viable new theoretical approach for understanding cognition and decision making.
