Imagine planning a vacation. Where do you stay? The budget-breaking five-star hotel or Motel 6? Now, imagine grocery shopping. Got the munchies or are you trying to be good this week?
Many everyday decisions have trade-offs.
In her Science Café, “Why’d I Do That? Exploring Decision-Making Processes,” Claudia González-Vallejo, Ohio University associate professor of psychology, will discuss her work on judgment and decision-making. She will explore questions such as how individuals judge the nutrition in foods or how people make trade-offs. The event will be held at 5 p.m. on Wed., Oct. 19, in the Baker Center Front Room.
Science Cafés are part of Ohio University’s Café Series, Wednesdays at the Baker Center Front Room. The series provides a venue for students to informally share their interests during a conversational exchange with faculty presenters, staff and the Athens community.
Free coffee is offered to the first 50 attendees, and participants who ask questions can win a free t-shirt.
The series is supported by the Ohio University Research Division and Sigma Xi.
