How Does the Brain Make Decisions? Harvard Scientists Shed New Light

Posted by in category: neuroscience

Researchers have uncovered new insights into the way brain cells, or neurons, interact when making a decision, and how the links between these neurons could reinforce a decision.

The study — conducted in mice and led by neuroscientists at Harvard Medical School — is the first to combine structural, functional, and behavioral analyses to explore how neuron-to-neuron connections support decision-making.

The findings were recently published in the journal Nature.
