Cognitive and Behavioral Economics Initiative

The Cognitive and Behavioral Economics Initiative supports research into the role of cognitive processes in explaining economic behavior, and the consequences of cognitive limitations for the way in which behavior responds to changing environments and policies. Among other goals, it seeks to deepen the empirical foundations of economic analysis by encouraging exchange of ideas among economists, psychologists, and neuroscientists. Among the activities supported by the Initiative are an interdisciplinary seminar series (Cognition and Decision Seminar Series), bringing visiting researchers to Columbia, and sponsoring conferences at which new research directions can be discussed.
