Portrait of Paul Glimcher, Professor at NYU Center for Neural Science.

Glimcher’s research focuses on studying human and animal decision-making using a variety of approaches. His neuroeconomics laboratory includes neurobiologists, psychologists, economists and mathematicians. They employ various techniques, including single-unit recordings, functional MRI scans and population-level studies, to understand the roots of human decision-making behavior. More recently, the laboratory has begun to employ its findings in translational settings undertaking clinical trials for NIDA.
