Speaker: Dr O’Dhaniel A. Mullette-Gillman on 29 Jan
Title: State Alterations of Human Economic and Moral Decision Making
Date: 29 Jan 2014, 12pm
Venue: AS4/02-08 (Psychology Department Meeting Room)
I will discuss research examining state alterations of human decision making. I will briefly overview two projects, and then focus on a third: 1) alterations of economic decision making due to aging and sleep deprivation, cognitive fatigue, testosterone levels, and tryptophan depletion, 2) how brain states before option presentation modulate risky decision making (MVPA), and 3) moral judgment modulation by disgust priming: Behavioral function and the underlying dynamic functional connectivity.
For those interested, I discussed these projects briefly in a recently TEDx talk, available at http://tinyurl.com/Odhaniel-TEDx
