The social and neural sciences share a common interest in understanding the mechanisms that underlie human behaviour. However, interactions between neuroscience and social science disciplines remain strikingly narrow and tenuous. We illustrate the scope and challenges for such interactions using the paradigmatic example of neuroeconomics. Using quantitative analyses of both its scientific literature and the social networks in its intellectual community, we show that neuroeconomics now reflects… Expand
Neuroeconomics beyond the brain: some externalist notions of choice
ABSTRACT Neuroeconomics is rather uncontroversially intended as a brain-centric research enterprise. This paper challenges the brain-centric approach to neuroeconomics – which can be traced back to aExpand
Mapping Rhetorical Topologies in Cognitive Neuroscience
Many tools that neuroscientists use to trace the complex topography of the human brain draw on the neuroscience literature to yield “metanalyses” or “syntheses of data.” These approaches conflateExpand
Neuropsychology’s Social Landscape: Common Ground With Social Neuroscience
TLDR
This review summarizes some of the main developments that have emerged from social neuroscience and their relevance to neuropsychology and makes recommendations for improving neuropsychological approaches to the evaluation of social cognition and competence. Expand
Mapping the Semantic Structure of Cognitive Neuroscience
TLDR
It is concluded that semantic analyses provide useful guidance for cognitive neuroscience as a discipline, both by illustrating systematic biases in the conduct and presentation of research and by identifying directions that may be most productive for future research. Expand
The state of the art in organizational cognitive neuroscience: the therapeutic gap and possible implications for clinical practice
TLDR
The OCN paradigm is revisited and further refine, and an approach is defined where the marriage of organizational theory and neuroscience will return even greater dividends in the future and that is within the field of clinical practice is defined. Expand
Neurocognitive Approach and Political Science:: fMRI Experiments of Prisoners' Dilemma Games@@@―囚人のジレンマゲームのfMRI実験を通して―
The same human behavior arises for different reasons, and different behaviors have the same motivation. Behavioral data alone is not sufficient to identify psychological mechanisms underlying humanExpand
A neural trait approach to exploring individual differences in social preferences
TLDR
The neural trait approach to uncovering sources of individual differences in social preferences, particularly as evidenced in economic games, is outlined and two primary methods used by researchers to quantify task-independent, brain-based characteristics that are stable over time are reviewed. Expand
The neuroscience of consumer choice
  • Ming Hsu, C. Yoon
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Current Opinion in Behavioral Sciences
  • 2015
TLDR
Progress and challenges relating to scientific and applied goals of the nascent field of consumer neuroscience are reviewed, with growing evidence of superiority in specific cases over existing market research techniques. Expand
Pitfalls in Organizational Neuroscience: A Critical Review and Suggestions for Future Research
The potential of neuroscience to be a viable framework for studying human behavior in organizations depends on scholars’ ability to evaluate, design, analyze, and accurately interpret neuroscientificExpand
Molecular neuroimaging of emotional decision-making
TLDR
An overview of recent molecular neuroimaging studies is provided to further the understanding of the neurochemical basis of "irrational" or emotional decision-making and the future direction, including clinical implications, of the field. Expand

TLDR
The resulting computational model is shown to anticipate a class of single-unit neural responses in orbitofrontal and striatal neurons that support the conversion of disparate types of future rewards into a kind of internal currency, that is, a common scale used to compare the valuation of future behavioral acts or stimuli.
