Normative Decisions Between More Than Two Alternatives

Thursday, October 20, 2016 -
18:00 to 19:30


301 Uris Hall New York, NY 10027

Every-day decisions frequently require choosing among multiple alternatives. Compared to binary choice paradigms, much less is known about the computational principle of decisions with more than two options. Previous physiological and behavioral experiments have revealed puzzling properties of human/animal decisions involving more than two options, such as interactions among these options and time-dependent decision thresholds. Why the nervous system ought to have such properties and how they functionally relate to each other remains poorly understood.
