  Biology of Decision-Making Symposia

"The support of the ENP has enabled us to organize in 2012, 2013 and 2014 three symposia entitled" Biology of Decision-Making "at the Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière. These meetings took place over two days the first years and three days last year. They brought together specialists from different disciplines who study decision making through various approaches: neuroscience, economics, modeling, ethology. Every day, a dozen internationally-renowned speakers gave talks, and fifty posters were exposed by students. These symposia have been very successful, we even had to refuse applications because of the limited number of the seats in the auditorium (188). These meetings were a great opportunity for researchers and Parisian students whom were able to interact with colleagues from around the world (including the US, Australia and Japan). They also helped to locate the Parisian scientific community as one of the centers for the study of decision making at the international level. "
