Perceptual Decision Making with a Continuum of Alternatives

Joram Keijser

Traditionally, the field of perceptual decision making has used relatively simple tasks involving two alternatives. While this has led to important insights into the basic neuroscience and psychology of decision making, animals often need to make more complicated decisions. We therefore collaborated with the Hayneslab (Charite Berlin) to investigate how humans make decisions when faced with a continuum of alternatives.
