Scientists Explain Why Some People Prefer Order and Certainty
Behavioral neuroscientists from UCLA identified changes in two brain regions that may answer to a question why some people prefer order and certainty while others prefer frequent changes and impulsive decisions.
The researchers set several experiments with rats. They found that all rats chose the risky option more often in the experiments. The exception was the rats without a functional basolateral amygdala, and those animals did not take risks during the experiments.
Changes in the brain regions and brain proteins may help scientists to explain people’s preferences for some outcomes. In the future, this knowledge may help to target any brain region to treat any disorder, including behavioral addictions such as gambling.
