Neuroscience and economics

cervelloThe book "Neuroscience and the Economics of Decision Making", edited by Alessandro Innocenti and Angela Sirigu and published on 16th April 2012 by Routledge in the series Routledge Advances in Experimental and Computable Economics, is a publication of the ALBO Project.

In the last two decades there has been a flourishing research carried out jointly by economists, psychologists and neuroscientists. This meltdown of competences has lead towards original approaches to investigate the mental and cognitive mechanisms involved in the way the economic agent collects, processes and uses information to make choices. This research field involves a new kind of scientist, trained in different disciplines, familiar in managing experimental data, and with the mathematical foundations of decision making. The ultimate goal of this research is to open the black-box to understand the behavioural and neural processes through which humans set preferences and translate these behaviours into optimal choices. The volume intends to bring forward new results and fresh insights into this matter.
