Computational, Cognitive, and Neural Models of Decision-making Biases


The question for the symposium is how best to understand biases in decision-making, going beyond traditional judgment and decision-making (JDM) accounts such as prospect theory to take a more modern reverse-engineering perspective bridging rational computational, algorithmic, and neural levels of explanation, and viewing decision-making under risk and uncertainty not just as a simple matter of evaluating lotteries but in the context of cognition more broadly, taking seriously learning, perception, motor control, memory, and action planning.
