Abstract:     
This chapter establishes how the regulatory process should change in order to bring out and use evidence from cognitive sciences. It further discusses the impact of cognitive sciences on the regulatory toolkit, positing that, on the one hand, traditional tools should be rethought about; and, on the other, that the regulatory toolkit should be enriched by two more strategies: empowerment and nudging (where the first eases the overcoming of cognitive and behavioural limitations, while the second exploits them).
