ABOUT THE program

The goal of the Neuroeconomics Summer School is to bring together post-docs and advanced graduate students in neuroscience, psychology, economics and related disciplines for intensive and advanced study of the rapidly growing interdisciplinary field of neuroeconomics. The course will feature daily lectures, morning and afternoon, by leading international faculty on Neuroeconomics. Workshops and experimental projects will take place in the evenings.

Lecture topics include introductions to economics, the psychology of judgment and decision-making, the neuroanatomy and physiology of decision-making, and computational modeling. The course will cover experiment and theoretical work on economic decision making in humans as well as animal models.
