I've marked this as a stub because most of the content is lists of papers, journals, schools, etc. related to Neuroeconomics, but doesn't really explain the subject. The part which does explain is still just a stub. Anthony Argyriou 16:43, 1 June 2007 (CDT)


I should very much like to see it extended, although I am poorly qualified for the purpose. But I am concerned by what seems to be economics' excessive reliance upon elaborate mathematical deduction from untested introspective postulates (such as occurs , for example in utility-based theories). Neuroeconomics could help to drag the profession back towards the real world. (A hint at the way that neuroscience can be allied with economics appears in Daine Coyle's The Soulful Science (p128) where she attempts to modify the utility function using the findings of prospect theory.) - Nick Gardner 02:56, 5 February 2008 (CST)
