Center for Behavioral Experiments
In the Center of Behavioral Experiments (CEBEX) we deal with human decision-making. Our research combines findings from economics, psychology, evolutionary biology, and neuroscience. To keep our finger on the pulse of time, we organize an international conference, and we pass our acquired knowledge by lecturing at both Czech and international universities and at our summer school.
