BraIn Plasticity & behavior changes



Research objectives



Another objective of our research group is to investigate how decision-making processes change as a result of historical events of international significance: in 2011, for example, we proposed a supplement to the Prospect Theory of Tversky and Kahneman which is still accepted today.
In addition, we are also investigating the modulation of decision-making processes following the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
