Decision Theory

In this chapter, you will learn how to implement progressively more comprehensive mathematical models of decision making using MATLAB®. The exploration of decision models will introduce solving partial differential equations as finite differences, focusing on the diffusion equation. A simple model accounting for perceptual decisions and corresponding activity in cortical areas LIP and MT will be discussed.
