How Behavioral Economics Can Help People Make Better Decisions

Thursday, April 2, 8:00-9:45 am
Daniel Mochon

Associate Professor of Marketing and Professor of Business Administration Tulane University, Freeman School of Business

 

People commonly make irrational choices. They fail to properly plan for their financial future, do a poor job of taking care of their health, and fall prey to simple tricks designed to manipulate which products they buy. In his keynote address, Daniel Mochon will discuss some of the basic principles of behavioral economics, which studies the psychological basis of decision-making. Through this discussion, he will explore the source of many of these irrational behaviors, and describe methods that can be used to avoid common mistakes and improve people’s decisions.

Daniel Mochon is an associate professor of marketing and the Edward H. Austin professor of business administration at Tulane University's

A.B. Freeman School of Business. 

His research focuses on understanding how the biases inherent to people's decision-making processes affect their judgments and choices and examining the practical implications of these biases for business and policy. 

His research spans many practical domains, including financial decision-making, health, and customer involvement and has been published in top business and psychology journals. Mochon received his PhD in Management Science from MIT's Sloan School of Management and his BA in psychology from Brown University. 


Academy Research Conference (ARC)

Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder

Wednesday, April 1, 8:00 am–5:00 pm
Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel

Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder (ANSD) is a unique condition that occurs in individuals with normal cochlear outer hair cell function and disordered afferent neural activity at the level of inner hair cell synapses, the auditory nerve, and/or brainstem. 

Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder (ANSD) is a unique condition that occurs in individuals with normal cochlear outer hair cell function and disordered afferent neural activity at the level of inner hair cell synapses, the auditory nerve, and/or brainstem. While the incidence rate is unknown, ANSD can affect individuals across the lifespan. Scientists do not fully understand the pathogenic mechanisms that underlie this condition which can make diagnosis and management a difficult clinical challenge.

This conference will present the latest translational research as it relates to examination of the etiology of ANSD, evaluation, and management.

Chair: Linda Hood, PhD
Lunch sponsored by Phonak.
