Presented by: Dr. Ian Krajbich, Psychology Professor
How do we make decisions? Traditionally, researchers have gone about answering this question by designing clever experiments to tease apart different possible answers. Now, with technology that allows us to measure and alter brain activity, we can address this question at a deeper level, test theories with neural data, and develop new answers that rely on principles of brain function. In this talk I will go over some of the key findings from decision neuroscience and current views on how the brain makes decisions.
