Hopkins Researchers Find Decision-Making Neurons



The human brain is a magnificent thing. It enables us to walk, talk, and develop complex longterm plans–as well as make split-second decisions. A group of researchers at Johns Hopkins has been studying those split-second decisions, trying to pinpoint just where in the brain they take place. And according to a new paper, they’ve managed to figure out exactly which neurons are involved when a person slams on the brakes to avoid an accident.
