Donal Cahill: Post Doc

My research interests mainly center around the cognitive processes that skew our beliefs towards desirability and the presumed benefits of this skew. My PhD work modeled the phenomenon using a repeated reward-based decision-making paradigm, and aimed to situate it in the dual-process framework of decision-making. I now aim to employ computational modeling approaches to more precisely articulate and identify the cognitive and neural processes that underlie it.
