SIEPR Policy Forum on Neuroeconomics
SIEPR Gunn Building
Koret-Taube Conference Center

Stanford, CA 94305
How do our brains shape our policy choices, including those problems we ignore?
The last decade has seen an explosion of research connecting economic decision-making and neuroscience. Neuroeconomists use brain activity to determine how we frame economic and policy decisions, handle risk and anticipate our future.
Leading researchers, policymakers, and "neuro-startups" will discuss this fascinating and rapidly developing area. Join us for the SIEPR Policy Forum on Neuroeconomics- your brain will approve!
