Peter Mohr heads the junior research group in neuroeconomics, jointly funded by the WZB and Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin. The group aims to gain a better understanding of the basic mechanisms of economic decision-making and to identify factors that might influence this process. To this end, the researchers combine various methods, including behavioral experiments and behavioral modeling, with imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging or eye tracking. The research agenda includes projects on the neural processing of economic risk, on attention effects with decision-making under risk, and on the influence of complexity on the way individuals choose decision-making strategies over the life course.
