Críticas:

" Decisions, Uncertainty, and the Brain is a worthwhile book." William H. Redmond Journal of Economic Issues "The book is an absorbing introduction to the emerging field of neuroeconomics, which combines economic concepts with the study of brains and behavior in humans and animals. Decisions, Uncertainty and theBrain makes a strong case that the marriage of neuroscience's history and of philosophical implications of neuroeconomics." Kenneth Silber Tech Central Station "The book is an absorbing introduction to the emerging field of neuroeconomics." Kenneth Silber Tech Central Station "This book will surely ignite discussion and soul searching among serious neuroscientists..." P. Read Montague Nature "This book will surely ignite discussion and soul searching among serious neuroscientists." P. Read Montague Nature

Reseña del editor:

In this provocative book, Paul Glimcher argues that economic theory may provide an alternative to the classical Cartesian model of the brain and behavior. Glimcher argues that Cartesian dualism operates from the false premise that the reflex is able to describe behavior in the real world that animals inhabit. A mathematically rich cognitive theory, he claims, could solve the most difficult problems that any environment could present, eliminating the need for dualism by eliminating the need for a reflex theory. Such a mathematically rigorous description of the neural processes that connect sensation and action, he explains, will have its roots in microeconomic theory. Economic theory allows physiologists to define both the optimal course of action that an animal might select and a mathematical route by which that optimal solution can be derived. Glimcher outlines what an economics-based cognitive model might look like and how one would begin to test it empirically. Along the way, he presents a fascinating history of neuroscience. He also discusses related questions about determinism, free will, and the stochastic nature of complex behavior.
