NaYoung So


I study decision-making to understand how the brain flexibly combines information to generate thoughts and behaviors. I do so by deconstructing the decision process into its parts. My current projects address (i) how the decision process can pause and continue after interruptions and (ii) how the decision terminates when the decision needs to be remembered and reported later. By piecing these parts together, I hope to understand seemingly simple yet complex decisions, like, what to have for dinner.
