2021 Leverhulme Lecture Series

A short online course in neuroeconomics by Professor Giorgio Coricelli, Leverhulme Trust Visiting Professor, University of Nottingham, and Professor of Economics and Psychology, University of Southern California

Lecture 1: The computation of value in economic choice – 4 May 2021, 16:00-17:30

Lecture 2: Value learning through reinforcement: the basic of dopamine and reinforcement learning – 11 May 2021, 16:00-17:30

Lecture 3: Strategizing and attention in games –  17 May 2021,  16:00-17:30

The main goals of the lectures are:

  • to learn about the academic field of neuroeconomics, its major theories, and debates;
  • become a critical consumer of research findings by learning the methodological standards for evaluating the soundness of such studies; 
  • acquire some practical skills for designing and analysing an experiment in the field of neuroeconomics.

The lectures will focus on neuroscience as a new lens on decision-making. We will focus primarily on studies of the neural basis of human behaviour.  This will include a special focus on the reward system, reinforcement learning, social preferences, and strategic choice.

Registration not required. 

Open to all students and faculty in the School of Economics, University of Nottingham, who will be emailed information on how to join.
