SIEPR Policy Forum on Neuroeconomics

Coffee and Welcome at 10:00 am

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.

Join us for the SIEPR Policy Forum on Neuroeconomics on April 11, 2014 to hear leading researchers, policy makers, and "neuro-startups" discuss this fascinating and rapidly developing area - your brain will approve!
