Decision making is a cognitive process of choosing an opinion or an action among two or more alternatives. Because of its importance in our everyday life,
it has recently emerged as one of the central themes in the studies of cognition. Despite the diversity of applications, most decisions share common elements
including deliberation and commitment. In this topic, I’d like to evaluate recent progress in understanding how these basic elements of decision formation are
implemented in the brain. Firstly, I will introduce the basic elements of decision making; then I will have a brief summary on the experimental studies; lastly,
I will talk about several simple modeling studies.
