Decision neuroscience addresses how the brain makes decisions, ranging from perception: “What is that thing?” or “Who is that person?" to value-based: “Do I want to buy that thing?” or “Should I vote for that person?". This new interdisciplinary field bridges cognitive neuroscience, neuroimaging, neurophysiology, economics and the social sciences. Professor Heekeren is a leading decision neuroscientist, Professor at the Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, Freie Universität Berlin, and a past president of the Society for Neuroeconomics.
