Our group publishes a paper in Nature Communications on how the brain integrates information to make preference-based decisions.
How do our brains make decisions that rely on subjective valuation of the different decision alternatives – for example when deciding to opt for a piece of apple or a piece of cake. How do these decisions differ from those that are purely based on the perceptual properties of the alternatives (like choosing the bigger of two items). Watch Andrea Pisauro, the lead author on this paper, describe the main findings of this work and their potential implications.
