Neural mechanisms of value-based decision-making: intracranial investigations in humans
11.30 am at GIN - Amphi Serge Kampf

Decision neuroscience in humans heavily relies on fMRI studies, which have identified a so-called brain valuation system. In this talk, I will compare the functional properties of value signals identified with fMRI versus intra-cranial recordings. Converging results provide a solid basis for understanding how the human brain makes a decision, and provide insights into several types of choice bias, such as the influence of mood fluctuations on risk attitude.

Mathias Pessiglione is invited by Julien Bastin
