New week in Neuroapp where we show you an application based on neuroscience. This app reproduces the famous test “Iowa Gambling task” (Damaso, Bechara and Anderson). This task stimulates real-life decision making process under risk. In this process not only executive functions are implied in the sense of probability weighting according to an incomplete information, but emocional factors.
Task consists on making 100 decisions within the objective of gain money as much as possible. For this, you should chose among four stacks of cards (A,B, C, D). Two of them used to be more profitable than others (provide more money) but also more risky (loss of money could be elevate), the others options used to be more stable (gains or losses are more equilibrated).From time to time distribution can change randomly. At the end you can see the amount of money gained. You can also receive via email charts where analyze type of decisions made (more or less risky).
Higly recommended for adults. Available on Google Play and Apple Store. It is a free app:
