Santander International Summer School “Frontiers in Neuroeconomics“
How Social and Individual Context Matters For The Biological Mechanisms of Behaviour
Date: April 7 to 17, 2014
Venue: Internationales Wissenschaftsforum Heidelberg (IWH)
Twenty outstanding doctoral students from selected universities in Asia, Europe and Latin America will be invited to participate in the Santander International Summer School “FRONTIERS IN NEUROECONOMICS“. The speakers are scientists from Heidelberg University as well as renowned experts from other European, Asian and Latin American universities.
The aim of the summer school is to bring together young researchers active in economics, behavioural, medical and human sciences with an interest in cutting-edge transdisciplinary research on specific aspects of the broader field of neuroeconomics. The summer school addresses personal factors, physical and mental health, and social and environmental factors that affect human decision making. It explores how biological factors of decision making interact with context factors and by that influence the process and the outcomes of decision making. Scientific directors of the summer school are Prof. Dr. Christiane Schwieren, Dr. Malte Stopsack, Dr. Knut Schnell from Heidelberg University and Dr. Santiago Sánchez-Pagés from Universitat de Barcelona. The invited speakers include Prof. Dr. Burkhard Schippers (USA), Dr. Paul Glimcher (USA) and Prof. Tatsuya Kameda (Japan).
