DECISION MAKING JOURNAL CLUB
  The goal of the Decision Making journal club is to dissect and critically evaluate recent papers in the field of decision science (broadly construed). We will draw on a diverse set of topics ranging from human neuroimaging, animal electrophysiology as well as behavioural and computational accounts of decision making. We will be meeting on a weekly basis (on Tuesdays at 12pm) in the meeting room on the 6th floor at 58 Hillhead Street. The journal club is open to all staff and students.
  For further information about these events, please contact Andrea Pisauro, Marios Philiastides or Elsa Fouragnan.
