The field of neuroeconomics bridges the disciplines of neuroscience, psychology, and economics to study how economic decision-making actually happens inside the brain. This workshop brings together investigators who are at the forefront of neuroeconomic research in China. Through this workshop we will exchange most recent research progress and discuss the future of neuroeconomics in China and Asia.
