Neuroeconomics at NYU

NYU’s Center for Neuroeconomics within the School of Arts and Sciences is growing. As of March 1 we became a University-wide Institute drawing together interdisciplinary scholars of decision making from across NYU’s 3 international portals, 11 study abroad sites and academic schools in New York ranging from the School of Medicine to the School of Engineering. The IISDM will continue the many ground-breaking programs of the Center for Neuroeconomics while developing a host of inter-school initiatives that will extend the depth and reach of scholarship in the decision-sciences here at NYU.
