Growing Up In NeuroEconomicS
The GUINNES Series: Unexpected and personal interviews
The GUINNES events are live, free-flowing, informal, and personal interviews with senior academic scientists, that are open to anyone, from MSc students to PI’s that are society members.
GUINNES is neither about science nor about giving or receiving generic career advice, but about each interviewee’s personal path – the behind-the-scenes, whether generalizable or not. Interviewees will share their doubts, angsts, failures, and difficult decisions, but also the great experiences and joy they have faced throughout your career.
Open to SNE members only. Not a member? Sign up for membership
The 2020-2021 Series will feature 3 interviews of distinguished researcher from the neuroeconomics community. Recordings of past talks will be available for members only to view. Members can login here to view past recordings.

Hilke Plassmann obtained her PhD in Marketing on preference formation in the brain jointly from Muenster University’s School of Business and Economics and the Medical School in 2005. After that she started the exciting adventure to move the north-american scientific system to do a post-doc with Antonio Rangel, first at Stanford and then at Caltech, co-supervised by Baba Shiv. The next station in Hilke’s career was starting as an Assistant Professor in Marketing at INSEAD in France where she has been since 2008. In 2015 she received two jobs for life within two days – becoming the mother of her first son Mats and tenure at INSEAD. Today, Hilke is the Octapharma Chaired Professor of Decision Neuroscience, still at INSEAD and INSEAD’s partner Sorbonne University in its Paris Brain Institute (ICM).
Hilke is broadly interested in three lines of research. First, she is interested in better understanding different decision-making related value signals in the brain and how they can be regulated to make better decisions. Second, she is looks at how expectations, emotions such as stress and internal signals deriving from the gut (e.g., the gut microbiota composition / diversity) module those neural signals. In her third research streams she writes about why or why not behavioral science and marketing needs brains to make better theories or models.
Simon Fraser University
Arthur Robson obtained a PhD in economics from MIT in 1974. He moved to Canada and was at the University of Western Ontario until 2003. He then joined Simon Fraser University where he is currently.
Colin F. Camerer
Colin Camerer is a pioneer in behavioral economics and in neuroeconomics. He is interested in how psychological forces and their deeper neuroscientific foundations influence economic decisions involving individuals and markets. Since 2007, he has been a chair of the Russell Sage Foundation Behavioral Economics Roundtable. He has one patent accepted on “Active Learning Decision Engines.” He is on editorial boards for numerous journals. In 2013, he was named a MacArthur Fellow.
Elizabeth A. Phelps
Elizabeth A. Phelps is the Pershing Square Professor of Human Neuroscience in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. She received her PhD from Princeton University and served on the faculty of Yale University and New York University. Her laboratory has earned widespread acclaim for its groundbreaking research on how the human brain processes emotion, particularly as it relates to learning, memory and decision making.
New York University
In 1983, Paul Glimcher received an A.B. magna cum laude in Neuroscience from Princeton University. In 1989 he received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Pennsylvania, working with Randy Gallistel. In 2017 Paul became part-time CEO, and later shifted to Chief Scientific Officer, of Datacubed Health, a successful mHealth data collection company. Today he is a professor of Neuroscience and Physiology, Psychiatry, Economics and Psychology at NYU’s School of Medicine.
