We focus on Decision Neuroscience (a.k.a. neuroeconomics), a nascent area that is at the intersection between neuroscience and social science disciplines. The broad goal of our research is to understand how the brain makes decisions, particularly complex, goal-directed decisions in social contexts. Our work uses neuroscience techniques and models of behavior to understand human motives, inferences, and strategies, in adults and in children, in healthy and clinical populations. Read more...

In a recent review on WIREs Cog. Sci., we discussed neurocomputation of strategic behavior, highlighting 2 questions: (i) How does the brain exploit past experience to learn to behave strategically, and (ii) how does the brain decide what to do in novel strategic situations in the absence of direct experience?

A new preprint by Yaomin, Qingtian, and Lusha is now online! It offers a computationally-tractable and neurobiologically-plausible account for how the brain aggregates entangeled information circulating among interconnected peers embedded in social networks.
