WHAT: Explore how human behavior, and its biological bases, drives the economy at Neuroscience 2011, the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience. What role does human decision-making play in driving modern markets, currencies, and stocks?

Past participants have included the Dalai Lama, actress Glenn Close, architect Frank Gehry, and choreographer Mark Morris.
