The psychology of judgment and decision making deals with numerous psychological factors and events, including moral intuitions and performance, intuitive and heuristic modes of evaluating and choosing, conscious reasoning modeled after Western logic, and the factors and biases that affect one's choice of choosing method and the performance of the method itself. As with all mental events, underlying this general topic are the neuroscientific and biological factors that modulate the uses of the various sub-mechanisms.
