I previously posted two neuroeconomics reviews. Here’s a new one from this year in Trends in Cognitive Sciences. It’s interesting because not only does it look at using psychological knowledge to inform economics, but it also reviews work in the other direction: using economic decision and organizational theory to study brain systems.

The review:
Sanfey, Loewenstein, McClure, Cohen: “Neuroeconomics: cross-currents in research on decision-making”
