About this Seminar

The majority of research on decision-making focuses on discrete decisions, that is ones that take place at a single moment in time and between a discrete set of options. In the natural world, however, decisions are often made in continuous contexts, and from a continuous range of options. In this talk, Dr. Hayden will discuss ways that the neuroscience of decision-making can be extended to encompass the continuous nature of real choice.
