2019 Shanghai Neuroeconomics Summer School

The goal of the Neuroeconomics Summer School is to bring together post-docs and advanced graduate students in neuroscience, psychology, economics and related disciplines for intensive and advanced study of the rapidly growing interdisciplinary field of neuroeconomics. The course will feature daily lectures, morning and afternoon, by leading international faculty on Neuroeconomics. Workshops and experimental projects will take place in the evenings.

Lecture topics include introductions to economics, the psychology of judgment and decision-making, the neuroanatomy and physiology of decision-making, and computational modeling. The course will cover experiment and theoretical work on economic decision making in humans as well as animal models.

We are now accepting applications for the 2019 Neuroeconomics Summer School. The application deadline is January 20, 2019 at 11:59PM EST.

Summer Undergraduate Research Program

If you are an undergraduate student interested in pursuing a career in neuroscience, the Center for Neural Science at NYU provides a 10-week Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) to enable students to acquire hands-on experience working in a neuroscience laboratory under the mentorship of a faculty member.

Applications to SURP are reviewed on a rolling basis from February 15 through March 15 of each academic year.
