The Fifth Symposium on Biology of Decision Making will take place on May 
11-13, 2015 at the Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle, Paris, France, 
with a satellite day at Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, France. The 
objective of this three day symposium is to gather people from different 
research fields with different approaches (economics, ethology, 
psychiatry, neural and computational approaches) to decision-making. The 
symposium will be a single-track, will last for 3 days and will include 
6 sessions:
(#1) Beyond two: Multi-alternative and multi-attribute choices;
(#2) Shaky business: Neural sources of choice variability;
(#3) Looking for causality: Choice bias following brain manipulation;
(#4) The dark side of choice: Delay, effort and punishment;
(#5) Choosing the unknown: The route to exploration;
(#6) More brains: Choice in social context.
