Decision Neuroscience - From Neurons to Societies

Panel 3: Neuromodulation of decision making (Genes, aging, pharmacology and decision making)

Friday, 3:45pm –5:45pm

Decision making is heavily influenced by the modulation of different neurotransmitter systems. In this session, current approaches will be discussed including genetics, psychopharmacology, and functional neuroimaging.


Discussion Leader:

    Role of dopamine in the interface between motivation and cognition
  • Mathias Pessiglione:
    Neural implementation of reinforcement learning models: some insights from neuroimaging and from patients. 
  • Markus Ullsperger:
    Neuromodulation of performance monitoring
