This chapter reviews the key theoretical, behavioral and neurobiological findings regarding such intertemporal tradeoffs. It first reviews economic notions of discounting and the wealth of neurobiological data regarding the representation of discounted value in the brain. It then discusses the brain mechanisms that might support choosing… CONTINUE READING
