Neuroscience Fundamentals course at UNSW

The Neu­ro­science Fun­da­men­tals course at UNSW seems to be a very good course for any finance stu­dent will­ing to explore Neu­ro­fi­nance as a research area. I would encour­age all stu­dents to look at this oppor­tu­ni­ty to build an intro back­ground in neu­ro­science, as the inter­sec­tion of neu­ro­science and finance is a very promis­ing field.

If you‘re think­ing of explor­ing this area, I‘ll be glad to see you to dis­cuss this: please email me to get an appoint­ment. Below is the abstract of the course:

This course is a cross-Fac­ul­ty offer­ing that will address six big ques­tions in mod­ern neu­ro­science. A new ques­tion will be explored each fort­night in lec­tures, a lab­o­ra­to­ry class and tuto­r­i­al. The focus of the course is on the range of dis­ci­plines that con­tribute to the field of neu­ro­science, and each fortnight’s top­ic will be taught by aca­d­e­mics from two or more dis­ci­plines using an inte­grat­ed approach. Stu­dents will devel­op an insight into how prob­lems in neu­ro­science are inves­ti­gat­ed and an appre­ci­a­tion of some cur­rent issues. The course is a com­pul­so­ry part of the Neu­ro­science study plan in Advanced Sci­ence (NEURA13972) but is open to oth­er stu­dents. Although there are no fixed pre-req­ui­sites, stu­dents are advised that the fol­low­ing cours­es will pro­vide a use­ful back­ground: ANAT2511 BIOC2101 PHPH2101 PSYC2081.

Caltech visit and society for neuroeconomics conference

I will be spend­ing a week in the US short­ly:

Cal­tech will be my usu­al stop on my way to Chica­go. I still have a few slots avail­able while there, and I would be very hap­py to meet with any­one inter­est­ed in the LA area (Pasade­na being the eas­i­est for me of course).

I am look­ing for­ward to meet­ing again with a lot of col­leagues in Evanston. The pro­gram is already quite busy, but please do send me an email if you want to meet, I’ll be more than hap­py to. I will be pre­sent­ing my lat­est neu­ro­fi­nance results the Sun­day.

This will be my first US trip since my relo­ca­tion to Syd­ney this Sep­tem­ber, and I have to say I’m thrilled that Cal­tech is a direct trip — Chica­go is not so direct to come back from ;-)
