Cognitive and Decision Sciences
The Center for Cognitive and Decision Sciences (CDS) seeks to understand how people of all ages make decisions.
We use computational models, neuroimaging methods, and behavioral experiments to uncover individual and age differences in the cognitive processes underlying decision making. Our goal is to understand how cognitive and affective processes influence decisions and ultimately help individuals to make better choices in everyday life.
