Deborah Marciano

Deborah is a PhD student in Psychology and at the Federmann Center for the Study of Rationality at the Hebrew University. Her works belongs to the growing field of Neuroeconomics, which draws insights from psychology, economics, and neuroscience. Deborah focuses on situation of choices between two uncertain options (for example stocks), and looks at the effect of the outcome of the unchosen option on judgment and decision-making. By using neuroscientific techniques paired with paradigms from behavioral economics, she hopes to paint an integrative picture of how feedback on foregone options can influence the way we evaluate information and shape our future decisions, as well as deepen our understanding of how these processes are encoded in the brain.
