The Center for Cognitive and Decision Sciences (CDS) aims to understand the psychological mechanisms underlying information search, representation, and integration, in particular, how individuals of all ages search and integrate evidence to make decisions under risk and uncertainty. CDS is committed to theoretical and methodological pluralism as well as interdisciplinary collaboration.
