PSYC57H3: Cognitive Neuroscience of Decision Making

This course will introduce students to current understanding, and ongoing debates, about how the brain makes both simple and complex decisions. Findings from single-cell neurophysiology, functional neuroimaging, and computational modeling will be used to illuminate fundamental aspects of choice, including reward prediction, value representation, action selection, and self-control.
