Neuroeconomist’s Apprentice

Saturday, May 30, 2015
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Decisions are a big part of daily life. What to eat? Go to bed or stay up late? Homework or video games? Apprentices ran an experiment with NYU neuroeconomist Paul Glimcher to determine how we arrive at these kinds of choices.

This event is supported by the Bezos Family Foundation.
