Posted 19/6/2017

Very proud to announce that Hanneke was awarded €800.000 for an NWO Vidi project to study adaptive decision-making under changing environmental constraints. Have a look below for a Dutch and English summary, or read a bit more here, and see here for more information about the other three grant winners at Radboud University.

EN - Getting things done: Finding the balance between deciding fast, and deciding well.
"Don't rush decisions!" Good advice, but too much deliberation leads to missed opportunities. Researchers will investigate how our brains help us to switch between impulsive and thoughtful decision-making strategies, and how getting stuck in one particular strategy may be related to negative consequences such as addiction and burn-out.

 

NL - De kosten van een keuze: Op zoek naar de balans tussen goed nadenken en snel beslissen.
"Neem geen overhaaste beslissingen!" Goed advies, maar te lang nadenken leidt tot gemiste kansen. Onderzoekers zullen bekijken welke hersenmechanismen ervoor zorgen dat we in elke situatie de juiste manier van beslissen inzetten, dus impulsief of juist doordacht, en wat de gevolgen zijn als je hiertussen niet goed kan schakelen.
