Building Bridges Between Neural Models And Complex Decision Making Behaviour, Neural Networks
Excerpt: Diffusion processes, and their discrete time counterparts, random walk models, have demonstrated an ability to account for a wide range of findings from behavioural decision making for which the purely algebraic and deterministic models often used in economics and psychology cannot account. Recent studies that record neural activations in non-human primates during perceptual decision making tasks have revealed that neural firing rates closely mimic the accumulation of preference theorized by behaviourally-derived diffusion models of decision making. This article bridges the expanse between the neurophysiological and behavioural decision making literatures specifically, decision field theory (...).
