This collection reflects the very latest research in neuroscience, psychology and the economics of decision-making. The practice of investigating decision-making from the phases of information collecting and processing to the impact of cognitive processes in economic and social interaction, is a relatively new one in the field of brain research. As such, it involves a new kind of scientist, using different methods and data. This interdisciplinary volume represents a state-of-the-art analysis of the field of neuroscience and economic decision-making. The models of decision-making reported in the book are tested through experimental methods, an approach which is popular in psychology and economics, but still relatively new in the field of neuroscience. This volume explores six key areas: Neural Foundations of Decision-Making Evidence on the Neuroscientific Foundations of Decision-Making Emotions in Decision-Making Learning and Risk Attitude in Decision-Making Probability and Judgment in Decision-Making Eye-tracking Studies of Decision-Making This volume will be of great interest to students and researchers in the fields of political economy, experimental economics and behavioural economics.
