This thesis investigates how information presentation affects decisions in ongoing task scenarios. For this purpose it reapplies the principles of bounded rationality and specifically framing effects into this domain. Over a number of studies. unique properties concerning both frame effectiveness and additional measures such as confidence are observed to occur. A theory of cognitive adaptation to novel scenarios, and a redefining of the concept of framing effects are proposed as a result.
