SIEPR Policy Forum on Neuroeconomics
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 fram economic and policy decisions, handle risk, and anticipate our future.
Leading researchers, policy makers, and "neuro-startups" will discuss this fascinating and rapidly developing area. Join us for the SIEPR Policy Forum on Neuroeconomics- your brain will approve!
