Decision Neuroscience - From Neurons to Societies

Panel 6: Economic decision making under risk

Saturday, 3:00pm – 5:00pm

Investment decisions are usually regarded as decisions under risk. The main topics are the different aspects of risky stimuli (e.g. reward magnitude, probability, expected reward, and risk) represented in the brain and the question how they are integrated to form an investment decision. This session will further address the issue of individual differences in investment decisions (e.g. age or risk attitude differences).

Discussion Leader: 

  • Andrew Caplin:
    Neuroeconomic research on choice under uncertainty: The co-evolution of theories and experiments 
  • Philippe Tobler:
    Neural segregation and integration of reward parameters
  • Jörg Rieskamp:
    Sequential sampling models of decision making under risk
