Kable joe 300x350-2Joseph Kable, PhD

Presenter: Joseph Kable, PhD, University of Pennsylvania

Overview: People often choose to pursue long-term future goals over short-term immediate ones, then abandon this pursuit before achieving the future goal. Dr. Kable will discuss how this failure to persist toward delayed goals can arise from ones expectations regarding uncertain future goals. He will talk about his work showing the critical role of uncertainty in persistence towards future outcomes and examining how different forms of uncertainty are encoded in the brain, and affect other neural representations during voluntary persistence.
