Neuroscience Seminar Series: Antonio Rangel (Caltech): "The neuroeconomics of self-control"
Monday, 08 September 2014, 5pm to 6pm
Lecture Theatre C
Abstract. Neuroeconomics studies what are the computations made by the brain in different decision situations, and how are these computations implemented and constraints by the underlying neurobiology. This talk describes recent fMRI, EEG and eye-tracking experiments designed to understand what are the neurocomputational differences between dietary choices and other types of decisions, and between those who exercise dietary self-control and those who do not.
