Center for Neuroregeneration Visiting Lecture Series: Benjamin Hayden

Neuroscience of Economic Choice
The Hayden Lab focuses on how novel methods have provided new answers to class questions in neuroeconomics. The new methods include innovative statistical approaches to analyzing single neuron data and new behavioral methods. The questions include how value is computed and represented, how value is bound to action, and how value is separated from choice.

Speaker Bio: Dr. Benjamin Hayden majored in Chemistry and Linguistics at Rice University and received his Ph.D. at University of California, Berkeley and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Duke University. His research involves intracranial recordings from human neurosurgical patients and focuses on core questions related to reward and executive control.
