You are invited to attend the 11th Annual Christopher Comer Undergraduate Neuroscience Seminar, “How Memory Guides Value-Based Decisions" by Dr. Daphna Shohamy, Professor, Department of Psychology, Zuckerman Mind, Brain Behavior Institute, Columbia University.

Dr. Shohamy uses human subjects, cognitive psychological testing and functional magnetic resonance imaging to understand how memory and reinforcement systems interact to generate value- based decisions. She also is interested in how the weights of these systems change as a function of maturity - using both adolescents and adults as research subjects. In the past 3 years, her work has appeared in the pages of the Journal of Neuroscience, Nature Communications and Neuron. Her work is funded by the Klarman, Templeton and McKnight foundations in addition to NIH.

Faculty Host: Mitch Roitman
