Enhanced Rationality in Older Adults - Relationship between Risk Preference and Strategy. Kurnianingsih, YA, Sim, KYS, Chee, MWL, Mullette-Gillman

posted Apr 18, 2013, 5:58 PM by O'Dhaniel Mullette-Gillman

Effects of aging on economic decision making across both gain and loss domains in healthy older adults. Summary: We find no effects in the gains domain, but in the losses domain older adults are more risk averse, show lower employment of effortful-maximizing strategies, and, in support of the accumulation of wisdom across the lifespan, older adults show a high correlation between risk preferences and strategy - the more they utilize the maximizing strategy the more risk neutral (rational) their preferences were. In contrast, young adults show a much greater variability between preferences and strategies. 

ODhanielLab is recruiting new lab members

posted Feb 4, 2013, 3:28 AM by O'Dhaniel Mullette-Gillman

ODhanielLab is looking for new lab members! 

These positions include a full time-research assistantship (post-baccalaureate) position, as well as research internships (full or part-time unpaid positions). 

Ideal candidates should have a strong interest in Cognitive Neuroscience / Neuroeconomics research and a background that provides for rapid training in running behavioral and fMRI experiments, and assisting in data analysis (including statistics, research methodologies, and computer programming). 

This is an excellent opportunity for individuals interested in gaining research experience before continuing to graduate programs in Cognitive Neuroscience, Neuroeconomics, Psychology, or Economics. 

ODhanielLab is an interdisciplinary research lab examining the neural basis of human decision making. Asst Prof. O'Dhaniel Mullette-Gillman holds a joint appointment with NUS-Psychology and Duke-NUS Neuroscience and Behavioral Disorders Programme, as well as being a Principle Investigator in the NUS-Neurobiology programme and SINAPSE Institute for Cognitive Science and Neurotechnologies. 

Interested candidates should email odhaniel @ nus.edu.sg, including their CV, a statement of research interests, two references, and a copy of their school transcript. 

Hope to hear from you!

Neuroeconomics: Brain on Money

posted Nov 14, 2012, 6:49 PM by O'Dhaniel Mullette-Gillman


Freshman seminar to be offered at National University of Singapore in Spring 2013:

We will explore the fascinating fields of Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroeconomics. By exploring recent research, we will examine how our brains make decisions – examining the neurobiology of gambling, wine evaluation, dieting, and even how hormones and genes can alter how you respond to others (altruism and morality). We will start off with an initial orientation on the brain and research techniques, and then take a discussion level approach to exploring these intriguing experiments. The focus will be the use of primary literature to facilitate critical thinking skills. Students will write weekly reaction papers and lead presentation on one paper.
