Welcome to the Glimcher Lab
The central goal of the laboratory for economics, psychology and neuroscience of decision is to develop and advance interdisciplinary models of human choice. Using methods ranging from cohort studies in experimental economics, to brain imaging to single neuron studies in non-human animals, the laboratory seeks to leverage multiple technologies and approaches to develop advanced models of human decision-making. These models themselves range from anatomical models to neural random utility theories. In sum, the laboratory uses a broad range of empirical and theoretical tools in its effort to better understand both how people and animals choose and how to develop policies to maximize the welfare of humans and animals everywhere.
