Decision Making clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Decision making is choosing the best option. UCSF is looking for volunteers for a study called "Dopaminergic Mechanisms Underlying Human Social Behavior." The study aims to understand how the brain makes social decisions and the role of certain chemicals called dopaminergic mechanisms.
open to eligible people ages 18-40
Developing theoretical, quantitative models of the basic cognitive mechanisms underlying human social decision-making, and understanding the influence of neuromodulators such as dopamine on these mechanisms, has important ramifications for both healthy and patient populations. In this proposal the investigators combine quantitative social measures, computational models, neuroimaging, and a pharmacological intervention to define the mechanisms of social decision-making.
