Article of the Week

How do brain fluctuations drive risk taking behavior?
Every day, we weigh the pros and cons of taking risks. At times, humans are prone to making risky decisions while at other times they are more conservative in their decision making. A study by researchers from University College London examined how natural fluctuations in brain activity affect our decision making when our brain is resting. The researchers found that inconsistencies in behavior can be partially explained by resting brain activity, a finding that emphasizes the importance of taking time to think before making important decisions.
