Decision-making requires two different brain areas that mature at different times during the teenage years. This may help parents understand why their teens are more prone to making risky decisions.
Even though people engage in seemingly impulsive decision-making, they may actually be predisposed to curtail it.
Video game players are faster and more accurate in their responses, and excel at decision-making tasks. The differences in accuracy and reaction time correlated with enhanced brain activity.
Study reveals how specific tasks are distributed to different areas within the prefrontal cortex to help with decision-making processes.
A new mathematical model has the potential to accurately distinguish a misunderstanding from false information and lies.
A new theory of decision-making helps explain why humans often make decisions that are simply adequate, not optimal. According to the theory, people often use relative thinking when they should use absolutes, and vice-versa.
The brain maximizes performance while minimizing cost by using data compression to help optimize decision-making.
