Workshop on Neuroeconomics and Endocrinological Economics

The Department of Economics will host the Workshop on Neuroeconomics and Endocrinological Economics, November 20 - 21, 2009. Neuroeconomics studies brain functions involved in individual and strategic decisions such as decisions under risk and uncertainty, competition and cooperation. Endocrinological Economics studies how hormones interact with individual and strategic decisions. Both interdisciplinary fields are at the frontier of today’s research in economics and neuroscience. The workshop brings together innovative researchers active in economics, neuroscience, endocrinology, genetics, anthropology and psychology to exchange novel results. It is organized by Burkhard C. Schipper, assistant professor of economics at UC Davis. Sponsors include the Levine Family Foundation, the College of Letters and Science and the Institute of Governmental Affairs.
