COGNITIVE PROCESSES3IntroductionDecision-making settings show that individuals have a tendency to weight losses moreheavily in comparison to equal-sized gains, and this defines loss aversion. Strategic decisionmaking by healthy adults amply documents the psychological and economic studies thataffect humanity. There is a little linkage between schizophrenia and reduced loss aversionwithin policy makers (Voigt et al., 2015). Individuals possess both positive and negativelayoffs when it comes to studying loss aversion. The Iterated Prisoner’s Dilemma paradigmnovel version will be used in this study in examining loss aversion association withschizophrenia. Schizophrenia is considered as a salience disorder, and this creates stimuliabnormalities during decision making by people. Loss aversion interestingly addresses humanbehavior to decision making through participative collaboration, stimuli understanding, andexperimental evidence making (Kapur, 2003). The purpose of this research proposal is tosuggest changes to lose aversion by people that may have a positive impact on boostingdecision making in different knowledge areas by individuals.Justification of the StudyThere is need to suggest changes under which the examination of loss aversion andschizophrenia is done. From the case study, this analysis is undertaken using a novel versionof Iterated Prisoner's Dilemma (IPD) paradigm, and this version characterizes loss aversion(Steele, 2011). Given that there are viable reasons under which loss aversion gets disrupted inschizophrenia, IPD paradigm is not sufficient to examine loss aversion’s association withschizophrenia. The dopamine hypothesis studying schizophrenia attributes its psychosis to theabnormal brain activity and complicates the neural processing of the brain due to weightimbalances (Corlett, Honey, & Fletcher, 2016). However, with the introduction ofparticipation population, stimuli, and experimental task; the examination of loss aversion
