- Satellite Symposium: “Stress and Social Economic Decision Making”
A Satellite meeting at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) will take place on September 26th, before the Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroeconomics (9/27-9/29).
Description: Stress is a ubiquitous phenomenon in humans’ social environment that can have important consequences both for individuals as well as for society at large. Stress has a major impact on brain function and behaviour, and a wealth of research shows how both chronic and acute stress impact on memory and cognition. Less is known about how stress affects economic judgements, despite a recent surge in research aiming to uncover the neural basis for economic decision making. The goal of this Symposium is to address the link between stress and social economic decision-making by bringing together leading scientists from the fields of economics, psychology and neuroscience. Experts on stress, emotion, psychopathology and behavioural and neural economics will present their experimental approaches. The symposium includes an overview of current research as well as a debate on where more research is needed, and emphasis is placed on discussions and interactions. There will be a poster session during lunch and coffee breaks and an aperitif for all participants at the end of the symposium.
Confirmed Speakers include: Lorenz Goette (University of Lausanne, Switzerland), Jack van Honk (Utrecht University, Netherlands), Brian Knutson (Stanford University, USA), Antonio Rangel (Caltech, USA), Carmen Sandi (EPFL, Switzerland), Oliver T. Wolf (Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany).

SUPPORT THE STUDENT TRAVEL AWARD FUND IN HONOR OF OUR DEAR COLLEAGUE PROFESSOR JOHN DICKHAUT
- The neuroeconomics community lost a dedicated colleague and dear friend with the passing of Professor John Dickhaut, PhD, who died in April 2010 at the age of 68 after a long battle with cancer. John was a strong supporter of the field, and we will greatly miss both his friendship and his scientific contributions. Please click on the "Dickhaut memorial" tab above for more information on John's career and the student travel award fun that the Society for Neuroeconomics has set up in his memory.
