• Top 10 best paper award for Head of School

    Tim Hodgson’s article “Limbic and prefrontal activity during conformity and violation of norms in a coordination game” has been voted as one of the top 10 best all time papers published in the American Psychological Association (APA) publication, Journal of Neuroscience, Psychology and Economics. To celebrate the awards, Prof. Hodgson has been invited to a special “JNPE Classics” session at the 10th Anniversary NeuroPsychoEconomics Conference in Munich in May, where authors of the selected best papers receive their award plaque and present their paper along with relevant follow-up work. The research, published originally in 2012 and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, used functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging to study brain activity in a cooperative economic game, with the aim of understanding the neural, cognitive and emotional processes through which social conventions and norms develop.
