NYU’s Institute for the Interdisciplinary Study of Decision Making (IISDM) is joining forces with the Kavli Foundation to design and execute the most ambitious and comprehensive study of human health and behavior ever attempted: the Kavli HUMAN Project. This transformative study is focused on elucidating novel insights in human health and behavior, and will involve following the life tracks of some 10,000 New York City residents over the course of 10-20 years. Throughout the design phase we have been holding stakeholder town halls to gain input from scientists on what such a neuroeconomic longitudinal study should look like.
Most recent event: Sunday, November 13, 2016 at the Society for Neuroscience 2016 Conference in San Diego from 5:30 – 8:30pm PT. This event was free to attend.
