This chapter focuses on the emerging field of neuroeconomics, in which economic and psychological approaches are combined to study how the brain computes or learns expected utilities that guide choice behavior. It discusses how to identify the neurological representation of “expected utility” and then examines how neuroscience can be used to develop new economic-psychological theories.

Keywords:   neuroeconomics, choice behavior, expected utility, neuroscience, economic-psychological theories
