About the Author(s)

Scott A. Huettel, Duke University, Allen W. Song, Duke University, and Gregory McCarthy, Yale University

Scott A. Huettel is the Jerry G. and Patricia Crawford Hubbard Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at Duke University, with secondary appointments in the Departments of Psychiatry and Neurobiology. His research uses a combination of behavioral, physiological, and neuroscience techniques to discover the neural mechanisms that support cognition, with a focus on decision-making. Much of his research—which includes collaborations with neuroscientists, psychologists, behavioral economists, and business and medical faculty—falls within the emerging interdiscipline of neuroeconomics. He is also a co-editor of Principles of Cognitive Neuroscience (2nd edition, 2013). Allen W. Song is Director of the Brain Imaging and Analysis Center and Professor in the Departments of Radiology, Psychiatry, Neurobiology, and Biomedical Engineering at Duke University.
