Cognition and Decision Seminar Series
The Cognition and Decision Seminar Series brings together scholars from economics, psychology, neuroscience and other fields who are united by an interest in the cognitive mechanisms involved in decision making and related behavior, and the ways in which a better understanding of these mechanisms can lead to more accurate models of human behavior and more effective public policies. Research presented in the seminars employs a variety of methods, including but not limited to physiological measurement of nervous systems, observation of decision making in laboratory settings, computational modeling of decision processes, and normative analyses of optimal decisions subject to information constraints or limits on the complexity of processing.
Seminar organizers: Eric Johnson, Michael Shadlen and Michael Woodford. The Cognition and Decision Seminar Series is jointly sponsored by the Program for Economic Research and the Center for Decision Sciences at the Columbia Business School.
