Welcome to the MIT Sloan Neuroeconomics Lab

We are a multidisciplinary research center studying problems at the intersection of economics, management and cognitive neuroscience.

Our projects are stimulated by economic theory and decision analysis, which provide an ideal standard, as beautiful conceptually as it is flawed empirically. We study behavior that appears anomalous in light of the rational model, focusing especially on financial, medical and consumption choices. These anomalies provide crucial evidence about human decision making.
Methods include functional MRI, lab experiments, game theory, Bayesian modeling, and machine learning.
