Public lecture to explore intersection of economics, human behavior, and brain science
Date:10/31/2011

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? How does our understanding of the biological mechanisms of reward anticipation, risk-taking, and emotion play out in our financial decisions?

Join economist Robert Shiller, PhD, economist and author of "Animal Spirits: How Human Behavior Drives The Economy" and leading neuroscientists for the annual Dialogues between Neuroscience and Society presentation. Past participants have included the Dalai Lama, actress Glenn Close, architect Frank Gehry, and choreographer Mark Morris.
