Decision Neuroscience

At the Center for Decision Neuroscience, we are studying the neural and cognitive mechansims underlying decision making and learning. Our research methods comprise the assessment and mathematical modeling of choices and learning processes, neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, EEG), and eye-tracking.

We are a team of young researchers with close connections to the Center for Economic Psychology (Prof. Rieskamp) and the Master and PhD programs in Social, Economic, and Decision Psychology (check out the SWE-blog).
