Article of the Week 
An influential theory about emotion and decision-making just failed a new test
British psychologists, Rebecca Wright at the University of Essex and Tim Rakow at King’s College London, tested the Somatic Marker Hypothesis - the idea that our physiological reactions unconsciously guide us to more optimal decisions - in a new context and found no evidence in support of it. While there is a larger evidence-base for the broader idea that our bodily functions influence our decision-making, this study highlights the fact that such evidence is collected in very narrow contexts and, when tested in new ways, may not hold up.
