This was my initial project, by now it developed in quite different and even slightly opposite direction. The main tenet of the former is that through a process of rational public discourse a common will of the community is being formed and th e legitimacy of the state and of the law is based on this common will formation. The most important characteristic of this deliberative process is that it is rational, and rationality is taken to mean generalizability in the Kantian sense, i. A proposal which cannot be recast in such a way can be dismissed as irrational.

I studied the role of the dopamine system in decision-making. Because the number of dopamine producing cells and receptors in the brain decreases as people get older, aging provides a good context to study the role of dopamine in different cognitive processes. Decision-making choosing the best alternative among a set of options, and updating your preferences based on the reward you get is one such process. We have done some of the first studies that combine positron emission tomography PET , functional magnetic resonance imaging fMRI and computational modelling of decision-making tasks to elucidate the role of dopamine.

Konnikova, Maria. Can high self-control have drawbacks? Extensive research has shown the lifelong benefits of self-control for important outcomes such as education, health, income, and happiness. Far less work has been done on its potential negative impacts, where an overwhelmingly positive trait can end up having a less than positive effect on behavior. Recent research suggests that one such side effect may be an increased susceptibility to illusory control IOC : in situations where actual control is limited but the potential for illusory control is high, high self-controllers may end up being more prone to overconfidence than low self-controllers, and this susceptibility may play out in suboptimal risk-taking behavior.

Abstract Deriving effective group decision-making procedures for complex environments is hard but of fundamental importance, and the challenges grow significantly more daunting when individuals are self-interested. There is an inherent tension in striving to achieve social goals in decisions that will impact individuals who are only concerned with selfish objectives. Innumerable scenarios fit this mold, from resource allocation to coordinating behavior in the presence of global constraints.
