An original argument for abandoning classical Cartesian dualism in favor of a model of brain and behavior based on classical microeconomics theory.The birds seemed to persist in behaving probabilistically even when the prey model said that they should have been a good deal more deterministic. ... and the relative profitability of the two prey types all seem to influence the decisions that the birds make in a simple and mathematically tractable fashion. ... In their paper, Krebs and his colleagues offer an interesting explanation for this observation.
