Neural coding of computational factors affecting decision making.

We constantly need to make decisions that can result in rewards or punishments of different magnitudes and different probabilities. To characterize the neural coding of computational factors affecting value-based decision making, it is first necessary to understand how they are coded in the brain when no choice needs to be done. This is the approach we took in the past few years using intra-cranial recordings in patients with epilepsy and fMRI in healthy controls to understand how factors, such as reward magnitude, probability or uncertainty (maximal for reward probability=0.5) are coded in the human brain.
