The purpose of this conference is to provide an open discussion forum for research in the intersection of neuroscience, psychology and economics of decision-making and to set a stage for the presentation of recent contributions.
The last decades of brain research have led to the emergence of a new field, which investigates the entire process of decision-making from the phases of information collecting and processing to the impact of cognitive processes in economic and social interaction. This field involves a new kind of scientist, trained in different disciplines, comfortable in working with experimental data, and conversant with the mathematical foundations of decision making. In order to promote the integration of neuroscience and decision making as a whole, we invite researchers and students to submit papers on the following topics:
· Cognitive biases in information collection and processing
· Neural basis of the processes of preference formation
· The role of emotion and motivation in decision making
· Psychological and neural basis of attention in decision making
· Behavioral and neural basis of self control and emotion regulation
· Behavioral and neural basis of intertemporal choice
· The role of memory in decision making
· Cognitive foundations of learning processes
· Behavioral and cognitive studies on economic and financial markets
· Cognitive studies on social interactions
· The role of cognitive biases in organizations and institutions
