New Mathematical Model Shows How Our Brains Make Complex Decisions

by David Nield, Science Alert

Getting to the bottom of understanding how our brains work is a fascinating challenge for scientists, and new research promises to shed more light on the inner workings of our minds – through a complex mathematics model. Scientists in the UK say they’ve constructed “the first biologically realistic mathematical model” that matches the way the brain makes complex decisions.

Not only can this model predict behavior, it’s also capable of predicting actual neural activity too. It simulates the way the human mind goes through the decision-making process, as well as the ways in which we learn from our mistakes and adapt for the future. The team’s findings could eventually help us in better understanding a multitude of conditions, from obsessive compulsive disorder to Parkinson’s disease.
