The purpose of this study is to investigate neural mechanism of healthy humans underlying group decision making and compare it with that of individual decision-making. Using functional neuroimaging technology combining with computational modeling, we examine how the human brain process social information to make a decision within a group, which often guides humans to make a better decision using collective wisdom.
