Neuroeconomics: Decision Making and the Brain

Neuroeconomics: Decision Making and the Brain

Thursday, January 20, 2011

 

Neuroscientist Paul Glimcher of New York University and Rob DeSalle, curator of Brain: The Inside Story, will discuss the interdisciplinary field of neuroeconomics, which melds psychology, economics, and neuroscience to study the mechanics of decision-making and intuition. Among other topics, Glimcher and DeSalle will discuss how the brain enables us to evaluate decisions, categorize risks and rewards, and interact with each other.
