Article of the Week
How We Make Decisions Depends on How Uncertain We Are
Researches from Dartmouth College recently published a study in the journal Nature Human Behavior showing differences between decisions made under risk and those made under uncertainty.  By administering a series of gambling tasks to humans and monkeys, the researchers found that both species changed their decision-making strategies depending on whether they knew risk probabilities or not.  In uncertain environments humans and monkeys opted for riskier choices, while when risk probabilities were known they were more risk-averse.
