Decision Making, Affect, and Learning: Attention and Performance XXIII

Mauricio R. Delgado, Elizabeth A. Phelps, and Trevor W. Robbins


This latest volume in the Attention and Performance series focuses on two of the fastest moving research areas in cognitive and affective neuroscience — decision making and emotional processing. This book investigates the psychological and neural systems underlying decision making, and the relationship with reward, affect, and learning. In addition, it considers neurodevelopmental and clinical aspects of these issues, for example the role of decision making and reward in drug addiction. It also looks at the applied aspects of this knowledge to other disciplines, including the growing field of ... More

Keywords: cognitive neuroscience, affective neuroscience, decision making, emotional processing, neural systems, neurodevelopmental aspects, clinical aspects, drug addiction, neuroeconomics
