Neurobiological Foundations of Decison-Making under Uncertainty
This dissertation aims at providing a neurobiological perspective on individual decision-making under uncertainty. In particular, it focuses on well-known heuristics of individual decision-making and tries to find biological factors that accompany them. For this purpose, research methods from different scientific fields -- including behavioral economics, psychology, neuroscience, biology, and anthropology -- are applied. This interdisciplinary approach is supposed to provide holistic insights into processes underlying individual behavior. Thereby, this thesis contributes to the field of behavioral and neuroeconomics.
