Description

As Sarah Brosnan, Distinguished University Professor of Psychology, Philosophy & Neuroscience and Co-Director of the Language Research Center, Georgia State University writes: 

"Humans routinely confront situations that require coordination among individuals, from mundane activities such as planning where to go for dinner to incredibly complicated activities, such as international agreements or trans-national ventures. Moreover, despite some failure, we frequently succeed in these situations. How did this ability evolve, and what prevents success in those situations in which it breaks down? To understand these and related questions, my lab utilizes an explicitly comparative approach to study the function of and mechanisms underlying decision-making. We look across a variety of species, particularly non-human primates, to explore the behavioral, cognitive and hormonal mechanisms underlying decision-making and how these decisions are influenced by ecology and the social environment."
