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).
05.12.2019 Our work on attention and normalization in multi-alternative decisions got accepted at Nature Human Behaviour (link will follow)!
01.10.2019 Some of our work will be presented at conferences in October: Regina got a poster and Michael a poster spotlight presentation at Neuroeconomics. Sebastian gives a talk and Peter has a poster at the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) meeting.
15.09.2019 A paper in collaboration with Jan Glaescher's team in Hamburg about semantic congruency has been accepted at Frontiers of Integrative Neuroscience.
26.08.2019 New publication in Computational Brain & Behavior: A commentary on the importance of power analyses for cognitive modeling.
01.08.2019 Gregory Benjamin Elbel and Noëlle Burri joined our team as new student assistants. Welcome and best wishes for a good start!
21.06.2019 Regina has been accepted in the antelope program, a career program for female (post)doctoral researchers. It includes an expert exchange, a career camp and several coaching sessions. Congratulations!
18.04.2019 Lauras publication on a reinforcement learning diffusion decision model for value-based decisions, published in Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, is now online.
08.02.2019 New publication in eLife, in which we present a simple and very efficient method to better connect cognitive models with brain data.
17.01.2019 Laura defended her doctoral thesis successfully and received the top grade of summa cum laude. Congratulations!
08.01.2019 We have a review article on complex value-based decisions together with Jerome Busemeyer und Brandon Turner in Trends in Cognitive Sciences.
