Dear Colleagues,

please consider submitting a research article/review to the special issue
of *Entropy* <https://www.mdpi.com/journal/entropy> “*Probabilistic
Inference in Goal-Directed Human and Decision-Making*”.

This special issue aims to focus on recent computational, methodological,
algorithmic advances regarding inferential processing in decision-making
with particular attention on efficiency and biological plausibility.

Topics include:

- *computational and neuronal circuits* involved in goal-directed decision
making, with a focus on the inferential mechanisms;

- *novel probabilistic models and methods* in decision making including
information-theory approaches, statistical and free-energy minimization,
hierarchical models, deep networks

- *decision-making applications* in ethological, social, psychological,
psychiatric, robotics, and computer science research.

*Entropy <https://www.mdpi.com/journal/entropy>* is an online open access
interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal of growing popularity providing an
advanced forum for the development and/or application of entropic and
information-theoretic studies in a wide variety of applications.

Author Benefits:

- *Open Access*: free for readers, with article processing charges (APC)
paid by authors or their institutions.

-* High visibility*: indexed by the Science Citation Index Expanded (Web of
Science), MathSciNet (AMS), Inspec (IET), Scopus and other databases.

- *Rapid publication*: manuscripts are peer-reviewed and a first decision
provided to authors approximately 19.1 days after submission; acceptance to
publication is undertaken in 5 days (median values for papers published in
this journal in the second half of 2018).
