Brain and Behaviour: experiment in strategic and social decision making (in English)

Dr. Matthew Embrey, PhD
Prof. Arno Riedl, Assistant Professor and Professor in Behavioural Economics

We humans are unique in the ability to put ourselves into the shoes of others and to interact cooperatively at an extent unparalleled in the animal kingdom. Recent developments in neuroscience, economy and game theory have brought insights in the behavioral as well as neural roots of these characteristics.

You can take part in an experiment and test your own behavior in strategic and social decision-making. In short, recent scientific findings will be presented. In addition to this experiment in the lab, it is possible to watch some short presentations on game theory in the room next door.
