Abstract

In this chapter, we discuss some ways in which neuroeconomic research can inform legal scholarship. Given the limitations on space of this chapter, we cannot discuss anything like all of the neuroeconomic research that has been done in the last few years, even all of that which is of relevance to legal scholarship. Therefore, this chapter is a highly selective review of the research that we believe is useful to legal scholars. The focus of the chapter is on neuroeconomic research related to financial decisions and its relevance to legal scholarship.
