For my research project, I'm performing a series of lab experiments designed to explore the agents' information searching and learning processes in the context of an oligopolistic market, where agents compete à la Cournot.

The experiment is aimed at developing both positive and normative theoretical results. On the one hand, I am interested in how individuals behave in the repeated game, when they are not able to use all the information concerning the payoff structure or the history of the game, because of budget, time, or cognitive constraints; on the other hand I would like to derive from the experimental results some policy indications in terms of optimal information disclosure.
