Title: LEEL - LMU Experimental Economics Lab

Description: The LMU Experimental Economics Lab (LEEL) is a central facility in the Economics Department, where we conduct experiments, subject pool sessions, and surveys to study economic decision making and to provide a hands-on and interactive teaching experience for our students. LMU's Economics Department has an outstanding group of faculty members who are experts in Experimental Economics. The LEEL is a dedicated, state-of-the-art experimental lab with custom-made lab furniture. The lab is located in University Hall in rooms 4226, 4228, and 4230; the rooms can be used as one large open space, or they can be divided into two or three sections. We have 3 servers and 30 client laptops, that can be connected in all possible different combinations. The laptops run Windows XP and experiments are usually programmed in ZTree. The access to software and peripherals on all client laptops can be controlled through Netsupport from the servers. The lab is mobile and can be set up in a wired or wireless configuration in UNH 4226-4230 (or elsewhere on campus); the facilities also allow to conduct paper-and-pen experiments. The lab is equipped with projection facilities in each section and a sound system.

Title: CREED - Center for Research in Experimental Economics and political Decision making

Description: The Center for Research in Experimental Economics and political Decision making is a research institute at the Amsterdam School of Economics, University of Amsterdam. CREED was founded in 1991 and currently has two labs, one with 36 cubicles and one with 24 cubicles, with a reception room in between. Both laboratories are connected to the same network and fileserver which makes it possible to run sessions with up to 60 participants. The computers in the larger lab have Windows XP installed, the computers in the smaller lab are MacBooks which can run mac OSX and Windows. The MacBooks are also available for outside-the-lab experiments using a wireless network. The experiments mostly use software developed by CREED’s programmer or php-mysql developed by the researchers themselves; occasionally Z-tree is used.

Title: Interdisciplinary Center for Economic Science at George Mason University

Description: The Interdisciplinary Center for Economic Science (ICES) brings together researchers and students interested in using the methods of experimental economics to answer research questions from a variety of fields. Using both laboratory and field experiments, research at ICES has been conducted in such areas as public choice, development, bargaining, neuroscience, and economic systems design (ESD). The Center was founded in 2001 by Vernon Smith (2002 Nobel Laureat in Economics). The main ICES laboratories are located in room 135 of the Science and Technology II building on the Fairfax campus. One lab contains 40 computer terminals and a smaller lab contains 16 computer terminals. The majority of economics experiments take place at this location. ICES also utilizes facilities in the Truland building on the Arlington campus. The Center for the Study of Neuroeconomics (CSN) has access to an Allegra 3T fMRI scanner, which reveals the location of brain activity in real-time by measuring hemodynamic response as subjects engage in economic decision making. The BeNeuro laboratory at the Krasnow Institute contains 16 computer terminals for use in economic experiments. Additionally, CSN owns Terraeconomicus, an island in the virtual world of Second Life®. It is home to George Mason University’s only virtual course, Economics of the Metaverse, where lessons, field trips, and presentations are completed from within the virtual world. Please visit our recruiter page to learn more and to sign up to be a participant in ICES experiments.

Title: Center for Behavioral and Experimental Economic Science at UT-Dallas

Description: The Center for Behavioral and Experimental Economic Science is a venue for bringing together faculty and 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 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.

Title: BBL - Behavioural Business Lab - RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia

Description: RMIT’s Behavioural Business Lab (BBL) brings together researchers from different business related disciplines who share an interest in understanding economic and business issues in terms of individual choice. Behavioural business research bridges the traditional boundaries between the social sciences by recognising the regularities in human behaviour irrespective of context. Behavioural researchers study the economy and business through the lens of decision making processes, mainly using empirical methods such as experiments that help generate new theories of social behaviour. The BBL is housed in the Swanston Academic Building (SAB), which is located at RMIT Building 80, 445 Swanston Street, Melbourne, Victoria 3000, Australia. It has 60 PCs, 60 telephone sets and mobile partitions, so that it can be configured in ways appropriate to the experiments being conducted. It is also equipped with a live market data feed and a range of financial analysis tools typically used by financial professionals, making it suitable for finance experiments.
