- The goal of this Ph.D. thesis is to better understand the nature of decision making, and especially the way we decide quickly or accurately, by changing the height of our decision threshold, or the level of evidence we require before committing to a decision. The research involves the mathematical buildup of the threshold, how it affects behavior, and how it is implemented in the brain, both in terms of neuroanatomy and neurochemistry.
- Research conducted at: Universiteit van Amsterdam
