Neuroeconomics and the Evolution of Economic Behavior


Welcome to the Neuroeconomics and the Evolution of Economic Behavior Conference 2018!

This workshop will be held from  May 4 to May 6, 2018 at  Simon Fraser University at Harbour Centre in downtown Vancouver (515 West Hastings St). Arthur Robson is the organizer of this conference.

The purpose of this conference is to facilitate and promote interest in alternative approaches to economics. A better understanding of neuroeconomics and the biological basis of behaviour has the potential to improve economic predictions and policy, especially with regard to some of the world's most pressing issues.

Thank you to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Insight Grant for the lion's share of the funding; and thank you to the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Vice President Academic, and the Economics Department, all at SFU.
