Cognitive and Decision Sciences

The Center for Cognitive and Decision Sciences (CDS) investigates how people of all ages make decisions. Our goal is to understand the mechanisms underlying decision making to ultimately help individuals and organizations make better choices, including those about wealth, health, and sustainability.

Our Mission: To understand and improve human decision-making through the use and development of evidence-based practices
