Guion A06
Primary areas: learning, decision-making, behavioral neuroscience

I research learning and decision-making processes in human and non-human animals. I focus on processes involved in learning about and representing information about the occurrence of important outcomes (i.e., the relation of a location to a likelihood of food, a lottery ticket to an expectation of money, a video game event to an expectation of points). I aim to determine the way that nonverbal information of outcome occurrence is represented and to understand how the way in which information is obtained affects the use of that information.
