MBI Researcher Veit Stuphorn and former graduate student Xiaomo Chen published a new paper on how the prefrontal cortex plays a causal role in the regulation of decision making in situations involving high risk.
Professors Ernst Niebur and Veit Stuphorn received a new grant from NSF titled “Human decision-making in complex environments.” The project will investigate the neural circuits involved in representing variables involved in decision-making, integrating these variables to form subjective values, and selecting one of the options in multi-attribute decisions. Niebur and Stuphorn will collaborate with Professor […]
