Setlow and Bizon Co-Edit Behavioural Brain Research Journal

Barry Setlow, Ph.D., and Jen Bizon, Ph.D., co-edit an invitational special issue of the Behavioural Brain Research journal titled “Amygdala and value-based decision making,” based on related previous work.

The journal issue specifically address emerging ideas regarding the function of the amygdala.  Broadly speaking, this brain region is involved in emotion and processing information about valence or what the brain perceives as ‘good’ and ‘bad.’ Moreover, in the last 10 years, there is an increased recognition that the amygdala plays a critical role in decision making and specifically how our brain weighs the possible positive and negative outcomes when deciding between two choice options.
