About the Center
The Center for Behavioral and Experimental Economic Science is a venue for bringing together faculty and graduate students who meet the highest standards for experimental research on human behavior in economic settings. Although most economists focus on aggregates, such as markets, experimental economic research studies individual behavior that may differ from the behavior of aggregates. The Center features a newly designed, state-of-the-science laboratory with over 30 computers in both fixed and reconfigurable spaces for face-to-face and paper-pencil research. The Center also hosts seminars and workshops that bring together leading experimentalists in the social and behavioral sciences from the United States and other countries. Ultimately, the mission of the Center is to significantly advance the knowledge and understanding of the choices that people make in settings involving markets, negotiation, and trade and production relationships.
