Joe McGuire's research page

My work examines the cognitive and neural processes that facilitate human decision making.

I'm a postdoc in Joe Kable's lab in the Penn Psychology department.

Current research interests:

  • Neural representation of subjective value and economic utility
  • Self-control, persistence, and delay of gratification
  • Forming and revising expectations in an uncertain world
  • Weighing the cost of mental effort
