Neuroethology of Decision Making

(p.550) Chapter 27 Neuroethology of Decision Making
Primate Neuroethology

Daeyeol Lee

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the neuroethology of decision making in primates. It argues that primates evolved more complex decision-making circuits to deal with the increasing complexities associated with social interactions. It presents evidence that primates can treat interactions with a computerized opponent strategically, a behavior that requires the representation of current goals as well as prior rewards and prior actions. Neurons in the prefrontal cortex in particular, seem to encode these variables.

Keywords:   decision making, primates, social interaction, neuroethology
