Ian Sample speaks with two members of an ambitious project that hopes to crack one of neuroscience’s biggest mysteries
From the most trivial to the most serious, decisions are central to our lives. But how the brain makes up its mind about what to do remains one of neuroscience’s greatest mysteries. Step forward the International Brain Laboratory (IBL). It’s a new, ambitious project that will combine scientific expertise from 21 labs across the globe, with the express aim to bring us closer to understanding what goes on in the brain when we make decisions – big and small.
