The Center for Decision Research, part of the Booth School of Business, is an interdisciplinary center devoted to research and teaching on how people make decisions and judgments. This field of study draws on cognitive and social psychology, economics, sociology, statistics, and other disciplines to understand how individuals and groups make decisions. Researchers at the Center study the processes by which intuition, reasoning, and social interaction produce beliefs, judgments, and choices. These topics have important applications in a range of contexts, including management, marketing, finance, and public policy. The Center's activities include a weekly research workshop, the distribution of a research paper series, and the maintenance of two research laboratories for the conduct of behavioral research studies.[1]
