2017 Neuroeconomics Summer School

July 17- July 29, 2017

The goal of the Neuroeconomics Summer School is to bring together post-docs and advanced graduate students in neuroscience, psychology, economics and related disciplines for an intensive and advanced study of the rapidly growing interdisciplinary field of Neuroeconomics.

The course will feature daily lectures, morning and afternoon, by leading international faculty in Neuroeconomics. Workshops and experimental projects will take place in the evenings. Modeled after the Cold Spring Harbor Banbury meetings and the Russell Sage Foundation Institute in Behavioral Economics, the course aims to be the preeminent training venue for young neuroeconomists.
