Behavioral Economics Lecture Series: Michael J. Beran, “Behavioral Economics from the Chimpanzee’s Perspective”
6 p.m., Psychology 105
One the foremost experts on primate cognition, Beran will discuss recent work with chimpanzees on a range of judgment, reasoning, and decision-making tasks designed to illuminate commonalities with human behavior. The results of these studies provide important insights into the evolutionary origins of human behavior and cognition, and illustrate the cross-species utility of behavioral economics.
