Article of the Week
How do we make snap decisions?
Researchers at Radboud University had participants made quick decisions under MRI. They would have to decide whether a cloud of dots on a screen was moving to the left or to the right in a matter of seconds. The team was particularly interested in the subthalamic nucleus (STN), a structure in the brain involved in the decision-making process. They found that the STN becomes more active during decision-making when there are several possible choices rather than just two options – a scenario that’s very relevant to everyday tasks.
