Cautiousness in Adulthood as a Function of Age and Payoff Structure
Okun, Morris A.; Elias, Cherin S.
Journal of Gerontology, 32, 4, 451-455, Jul 77

In contrast to prior research using constant payoff structures, results did not indicate that older adults are more cautious than young adults. (Author)
