BEN HAYDEN, "NEURONAL FOUNDATIONS OF ECONOMIC VALUE"

Thursday, April 6, 2017 - 06:00
6:00pm - 7:30pm

Location: 

301 Uris Hall New York, NY 10027 United States

Value is a central concept in economic theory and in neuroeconomics. Nonetheless, we have only recently begun to understand how the brain evaluates options and compares values to make beneficial choices. These processes appear to involve the coordinated action of multiple prefrontal and striatal regions acting together. Our work suggests that value is an emergent process that depends on the coordinated action of component processes, including memory, executive control, and action selection.

ANNE CHURCHLAND, "A MULTISENSORY APPROACH FOR UNDERSTANDING DECISION CIRCUITS"

Thursday, December 8, 2016 (All day)
6:00pm-7:30pm

Location: 

326 Uris Hall New York, NY 10027 United States

The Churchland lab aims to define the neural circuits that allow animals to integrate evidence across time and sensory modalities to guide decisions. To achieve this, we join two previously separate fields, decision-making and multisensory integration, and bring this combined approach to rodents. Our current focus has been on neurons in the posterior parietal cortex (PPC). PPC receives diverse inputs and responds during a dizzying array of behaviors.
