The neural mechanisms that explain the speed and accuracy of perceptual decisions appear to apply more broadly to reasoning from symbols, and choices based on value or preference. I will describe recent findings from human experiments (collaboration with Daphna Shohamy lab) in which we compare value- and perceptual decision making in humans. The results implicate a constructive role of episodic memory in value-based decisions.
