Control and Decision Making Lab - Wouter Kool

Our research

In our lab at Washington University in St. Louis, we explore the interaction between cognitive control, decision making, and reinforcement learning. We approach these issues by combining insights from behavioral experiments, computational modeling, and neuroimaging. Recent research from the lab examines how the brain implements effort-based decision making, how the mind arbitrates between multiple choice strategies, and how people learn how to adapt such arbitration processes in dynamic learning contexts.
