A wealth of behavioral neuroscience experiments has provided many constraints on the nature and neural underpinnings of distinct systems involved in animal and human decision-making. I will argue that one account for this diversity is a set of semi-quantifiable trade-offs between the statistical efficiency of the learning of the information required to make good decisions, and the computational efficiency of the methods for using this information in practice. An extra controller, associated with Pavlovian predictions, evades this normative analysis, and chooses mildly or wildly unfortunate responses.
Joint work with Nathaniel Daw, Mate Lengyel, Yael Niv, Ben Seymour

we would like your input as we
develop important tools for engaging visitors when the University of
Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) reopens in early 2009.
Each focus group will be presented with two entirely different
strategies - one a high tech multi-user interactive table called the
Dialogtable, and the other a low tech approach which will take the
form of a series of different print-based tools available to visitors
in the galleries.
If you participated in our November focus groups, please note that
there will be substantially new information to consider. In addition
to new topics and questions, the focus groups this time combine
discussion of both tools into one longer session.
Please join us on Monday, January 28 or Tuesday, January 29 for the
opportunity to shape UMMA's interpretive strategies as they evolve.
Food and refreshments will be served!
Tue, Jan 29
12:00 – 2:00, lunch will be served
4:30 – 6:30, light dinner will be served
All sessions will be held at UMMA's office in Rackham Graduate
Building, 915 E. Washington, Suite 0540 on the lower level.
Please feel free to forward this invitation to friends and colleagues
you think would be interested in participating.
