I am currently investigating the effects of atomoxetine on decision making in healthy people as well as patients with Cocaine Use Disorder. The Cambridge Gambling Task is the principle way of quantifying these effects, and I'm using Bayesian modelling in order to build a cognitive model for this task, which will hopefully let us see how the drug affects these cognitive processes.
