Investigating phenotypes of choice using comutational fMRI



In this project, we will investigate how we make decisions and how decision processes take place in the brain.
To do so, we will use functional magnetic resonance imaging and a theoretical model of decision processes, which allows us to classify individual decision-making behaviour according to subject specific parameters. Specifically, we will investigate whether subject-specific parameters can be generalised over different tasks, such that estimated parameters in one task are predictive of behaviour in another task. To investigate this we will use two tasks that have been previously validated in experimental studies. In addition, we will investigate whether these parameters correlate with individual traits such as impulsivity and sensation seeking measures
