About the Shanghai Neuroeconomics Collective

Neuroeconomics is a rapidly growing international academic discipline focused on understanding how and why humans and animals make the decisions that they do. Combining approaches from Economics, Psychology, Neuroscience and Anthropology, the discipline unites scholars from across the academic spectrum to understand how we make decisions with an aim towards treating pathology, understanding consumer behavior and developing better public policies. In the last decade, Centers for the Study of Neuroeconomics have begun to emerge throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim. In and around Shanghai, three major research centers have united to build Neuroeconomics in this region. New York University - Shanghai, Duke University Kunshan, and East China Normal University work together to support a regional seminar series, an international summer school, regular regional meetings and a host of other projects designed to enhance the importance of Neuroeconomics within East China. 

The Shanghai Neuroeconomics Collective supports, as one of its flagship programs, an international summer school on Neuroeconomics which will be held biennially. Held on the brand new downtown campus of New York University in Shanghai, the Neuroeconomics Summer School brings together international leaders in neuroeconomics and gifted graduate students and postdoctoral fellows for an intensive 2-week course. Modeled after the Cold Spring Harbor Banbury meetings and the International Behavioral Economics Summer School, the course aims to be the preeminent training venue for young neuroeconomists.

The 14th Kavli Futures Symposium on “Neuroeconomics in China and Asia: Building Interest and Capacity”  featured leading neuroscientists from NYU-New York City, NYU Shanghai, Duke University, and Institute of Neuroscience, Chinese Academy of Sciences.  Presentations and discussions examined the neural basis of decision making in biological, applied and clinical contexts.

A fundamental goal of the the Shanghai Neuroeconomics Collective is to promote interdisciplinary discussion amongst the many scholars in Shanghai who study Decision-Making. To bring together scholars from all of the Shanghai Universities and Institutes on a regular basis the Cooperative hosts a monthly seminar in Neuroeconomics at NYU-Shanghai's campus in PuDong. The monthly colloquium brings Internationally recognized speakers from Asia, Europe and the Americas to Shanghai.
