"New brain imaging technologies have motivated neuroeconomic studies of the internal order of the mind and its links with the spectrum of human decisions from choice among fixed gambles to choice mediated by market and other institutional rules. We are only at the beginning of the enterprise, but its promise suggests a fundamental change in how we think, observe, and model decision in all its contexts."
