Welcome to the Neuropsychology of Decision-Making Lab
 The broad goal of the neuropsychology of decision making laboratory, led by Dr. Stacey Wood, is to examine decision making from a lifespan perspective. We know the brain changes as people age, but so do their experiences and motivations. The lab has been involved in projects that examine basic changes in decision-making as individuals age in the areas of risk and choice. We have also completed a number of applied projects including examining insurance purchases by older adults (Medicare),  financial capacity, and risk for financial exploitation. Our lab is located in Steele Hall on Scripps College’s campus.
