Foundations of Neuroeconomic Analysis

Paul W. Glimcher

  • Provides a conceptual and philosophical framework for understanding and conducting neuroeconomic research at the intersection of neuroscience, economics and psychology.
  • Describes the first standard model for the choice process that links and spans neurobiological, psychological, and economic levels of analysis.
  • Applies neuroscience to both behavioral economics and neoclassical economics, and ties both fields to biological constraints in how we judge relative value and make choices.
  • An important resource for researchers in disciplines ranging from economics to neuroscience, as well as to scholars of the theory of science and the development of interdisciplinary research.
  • Important reading for anyone who wants to know more about how the way we think—the physical mechanism—affects what we think.
