Prof. Ifat Levy

Department of Comparative Medicine, Yale School of Medicine


On the topic of:

“Behavior and brain under uncertainty in health and disease”


Our attitudes towards uncertainty to a large extent shape who we are, and likely play a role in mental illness. Our lab uses behavioral and neuroimaging techniques to study valuation, decision making and learning under uncertainty. I will describe a series of studies in which we characterized individual differences in behavior under uncertainty, examined their structural and functional neural correlates, and identified features that predict psychiatric symptoms.
