Zurich Center for Neuroeconomics (ZNE)

Laboratory for Social and Neural Systems Research (SNS Lab)

How we ensure your health and safety in our experiments in the SNS Lab:

  • There are no Covid-19 regulations anymore in the USZ or in the SNS-Lab.
  • When entering the lab, you are required to disinfect your hands. Experimenters will disinfect their hands regularly during the experiment.
  • Experimenters and participants can voluntary wear masks.
  • Devices and surfaces will be disinfected before and after each measurement. Other surfaces will be disinfected at least three times per day.

The Laboratory for Social and Neural Systems Research (SNS Lab) was founded thanks to the generous support from Branco Weiss, the University of Zurich, and the University Hospital Zurich. The laboratory is located in a custom-built section of the MR-Centre at University Hospital Zurich and is equipped with research-dedicated equipment for experiments using fMRI, brain stimulation, behavioural measurements, EEG, and pharmacological manipulations.

The SNS lab operates in close collaboration with the Translational Neuromodeling Unit and the Institute for Biomedical Engineering.

Located at the University Hospital Zurich, the SNS Lab is in the center of Zurich, opposite the main buildings of the University of Zurich and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH). Here is a map of the location of the lab.

The tram stop "ETH / Universitaetsspital" is right in front of the main entrance to the University Hospital Zurich, making it easy to get to the SNS Lab using Zurich's renowned public transportation system.
