Modeling the brain to predict behavior

Neuroeconomic Theory


The Theoretical Research in Neuroeconomic Decision-making (TREND) Institute is committed to advancing the exploration of Neuroeconomic Theory. This groundbreaking interdisciplinary pursuit integrates findings from the realms of neuroscience and economics. By harnessing insights from experimental neuroscience and neurobiology, TREND delves into intricate details concerning the functionality, interconnectivity, and inherent physiological bounds governing the diverse neural networks engaged in the decision-making process. Complementing this endeavor, microeconomic theory serves as a potent instrument, empowering the construction of elegant economic models. These models incorporate the intricate interplay among these neural systems, while also embracing meticulously defined constraints that underpin the mechanics of choice.
