Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

[AIMS]
Decision neuroscience (aka, neuroeconomics) is one of the most interdisciplinary and fast-moving fields, as it combines psychology, economics, and neuroscience to gain insights into how the brain computes value and makes decisions in different contexts.

To this end, it is important to lay the foundation of main concepts and insights of decision neuroscience, so that students are able to deepen their knowledge and understanding in later stages of their studies.

[CONTENT]
This course is dedicated to introducing students to key findings in decision neuroscience as well as common research methods used in decision neuroscience. Throughout the course, we will also cover basic research skills and good scientific practice, e.g., open science.

[METHODS]
Oral presentations by lecturer and students, in-class participation, group presentations.
