Very interesting stuff :) I couldn't wait to get started with new lessons. Would love to see a follow up course discussing more advance and complex neuroeconomics papers in the future.

fantastic new topic. Despite his accent, Professor Klucharov has taught this difficult topic very nicely.\n\nEnjoyed every moment of it and learnt so much despite being a Neurologist.

El tema es muy interesante, sin embargo, el maestro lo noté un poco tímido y sin dinámica.

really interesting. I didn't know anything about neuroeconomics and it gave me the foundation of the topic. Don't expect too much in terms of behavioural economy as it only incidentally touches the area

Solid content and a great foundation of different schools of thought on the topic. Interesting brain science that is fairly accessible even from someone who doesn't know much about the topic. Some lessons can be difficult to follow.

This is a great course. Gave basic understanding of decision making. This has set me up well to learn more specific courses in Neuroeconomics.

Very good course with a moderate difficulty for people with a psychological or neuroscientific background. Like every course, it has some lectures that you'll love and others that maybe are a little bit repetitive. I really recommend this course for everyone who is starting in the field of decision making.

Really Insteresting lecture, but it is still hard to understand for people without psycology background.

Interesting, broad introduction to the field. Most of the lectures are easy enough to follow as someone with a psychology background.

This was such an interesting course! The material was dense and challenging, but explained in a way a regular person (like me) could understand. I learned a lot and want to explore further--will look for more courses on this subject.

The course was very interesting, and I keep referring to what I have learned. Yet, it seemed to be too specialized. I could easily follow with a neuroscience PhD in my pocket but I don't think others have this luxory although the topic might interest them. The exercises required too much theoretical knowledge, which didn't help to get a better understanding of the topic. I would love to see a "Neuroeconomics light" in the future.

My background is in Economics and I was looking for ways in which Neurosciences could inform Economics. What I liked most was to get to know some studies in which different decisions are made when specific parts of the brain are deactivated or hormone levels interfered. Additionally, it was very nice to recall some of the insights biology and evolutionary theories have to offer when attempting to understand human behavior, alone and in groups. Finally, I really enjoyed some of the discussions with experts at the end of each week - I got to know the current state of the art of well-selected topics.
What I disliked was the disproportion between the number of hours and content, although I am not sure whether some of it could be skipped... There were several applications to economic settings (let's say these imply decisions where utility or value is at stake), namely self-control, risk-taking, loss aversion, competition vs cooperation, but I would have liked there to be some recap classes highlighting the direct connection between the brain area / neural phenomenon and the observed behavior. The Professor could also show more enthusiasm (facial expressions, voice) since the course is many hours long.
Still, the content of the course was nice and covered several insights from the span of disciplines in Neuroeconomics. My impression is that the bridging of disciplines is still very young but has a lot of potential. Good job!

The course has many mistypings and inaccuracies, but still it's a good one. It's quite interesting yet complicated when things get close to the pure neuroscience.

More neuro than economics.
IMHO, too much focus on the brain and little on economics (from the perspective of someone with economics background).
Anyway, interesting and well explained.

It's a difficult course with some hard topics on neurophysiology for people with no background on biology. On the other hand, it's a great challenge for everyone interested on brain decision making.

I dropped on Week 5. There was just the required minimum for a MOOC. I did not find it engaging. Too bad, as I was genuinely curious of the topic.

On apprend l'implication de vastes zones du cerveau dans les prises de décision. Chaque zone comporte des millions de neurones interconnectés. On ne sait pas réellement ce qui se passe. Ce que j'ai trouvé le plus intéressant c'est la remise en cause du libre arbitre par B. Libet (que je connaissais) mais surtout l'étude de Stefan Bode (que je ne connaissais pas). Je crois aussi que les processus de décision qui ne sont pas sous contrainte temporelle ne sont pas à comparer, même implicitement aux comportement des singes.
En fait que dit le cours ? " Vous êtes déterminés par des circuits neuronaux qui sont eux-mêmes le fruit de l'évolution darwinienne. " Je pense que les décisions humaines complexes et qui peuvent se prendre dans la durée ne sont pas déterminées par des processus aussi simples.

Complete idiot. He doesn't have any critical view of his field (which is unfortunately full of crappy studies). Also, I hope he didn't choose the logo from his university. It's a good metaphor for the course though, shiny but absolutely ridiculous.
