  • Shih-Wei being promoted to Full Professor!
  • How does the brain weigh information? Our work on base rate neglect and information weighting system is in the news! [link]
  • Why comparison isn't necessarily a good thing to do? Our work on context effect is in the news! [link]
  • Our new paper "Base rate neglect and neural computations for subjective weight in decision under uncertainty" is out in PNAS: [link].
  • Our new paper "Context effects on probability estimation" is out in PLOS Biology: [link]. We show that people's probability estimates are context-dependent and that greater uncertainty about whether an event would occur makes us more susceptible to being affected by the context of our past experience.
  • Congratulations to Yun-Yen Yang (former Masters student) to being accepted by PhD program in Psychology at Rutgers University Newark! Yun-Yen also received Fulbright scholarship for her PhD study!
  • Congratulations to Wei-Hsiang Lin (former Masters student and research assistant) to being accepted by the Neuroscience PhD program at EPFL (Lausanne)!
