How do our thoughts influence our choices?

Russek, Moran, Liu, Dolan and Huys (2021): Selective outcome reinstatement during evaluation drives heuristics in risky choice psyArxiv

What we think of can have profound influences on the choices we ultimately make. However, this process is poorly understood at a neural level. Here, we use MEG decoding to examine which stimulus representations are activated while making a risky choice. We find that individual differences in the tendency to reactivate certain types of information relate to individual risk seeking preferences.
