Videos of the presentations at the Biological Basis of Preferences and Behaviour conference have been put online. Many are worth watching. I hope to write more detailed posts about a few of the presentations soon, but the three presentations I got the most out of were:
- “Social Networks and Cooperation in Hunter-Gatherers” by Coren Apicella. Presentations such as this always remind me that I should be reading far more work by anthropologists.
- “The Genetic Architecture of Economic and Political Preferences” by David Cesarini. A good introduction to the growing field of genoeconomics.
- “Cognitive Trade-Offs in Chimpanzee Versus Human Mixed Strategy Play” by Colin Camerer. Don’t play poker against chimpanzees. I’ve posted on these chimps before.
