MBI Labs Receive New NSF Grant to Study Decision-Making

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 Sridevi Sarma of the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering at the JHU Whiting School of Engineering, along with Dr. Jorge Gonzalez-Martinez of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.
