The latest issue of the Louvain Economic Review is dedicated to the questions of confidence and decision-making in neuro-economics with contributions by notably Sacha Bourgeois-Gironde and Bernard Walliser.
As the editors point it out: “Neuroeconomics is not in 2012 a unified field, after a decade of identifiable existence. It is not clear whether it should be defined as the “old” field of neurosciences of decision-making, as part of the most recent social neurosciences, or as something else, more loosely tapping jointly into experimental economics, decision-theory and cognitive and affective neuroscience. Its boundaries then are vague, multi-layered, and it will be relatively arbitrary to restrict it to coherent confines as we will try to do. Moreover, the problem that affects the definition of neuroeconomics is not only one of extension, but one of characterizing its purposes. Is its more relevant import modeling, new facts-finding, epistemological revolution or restoration inside economics?
We collected several contributions of up to date works in neuroeconomics that in fact resort to these several potentially divergent perspectives.”
