In this report, we propose a modification on the Asano-Ohya-Khrennikov quantum-like decision-making process model of a two-player game by adding additional nonlinear terms to the related comparison step dynamical equation. The additions are in the form of a self-interaction and cross-interaction of the brain’s amygdala and prefrontal cortex. We show that the cross-interaction significantly determines the final decision of a player, whether it becomes a rational or an irrational choice. In contrast, the nonlinear self-interaction term provides a feedback mechanism that speeds up the corresponding decision-making process. We also suggest the form of expectation values of the overall reaction rate coefficients of those nonlinear terms by making an analogy with the original model formulation.
