From robots to humans, the ability to learn from experience turns a rigid response system into a flexible, adaptive one. What are the mechanisms that allow everyday experiences to change the way we perceive, act and make decisions? Research by Daphna Shohamy, PhD, an Associate Professor of Psychology at Columbia University and Principal Investigator at the Morimter B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute, explores how different parts of the brain work together to support learning, what this means for how memories are built, and what the consequences are for how we make decisions.
