Implantation of multi-electrode recordings neurosurgical patients provide a unique opportunity to learn about the electrophysiological basis of behavior.
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging allows non-invasive, safe monitoring of brain activity.
Pharmacological tools allow the manipulation of neurotransmitter levels in healthy volunteers and provide causal and mechanistic insights.
Modern sequencing techniques allow us to examine hundreds of thousands of individual genetic variants to examine the genetic basis of economic behavior.
Computational models of behavior provide a precise mathematical description of decision-making behavior.
Behavioral tasks are derived from behavioral economics and game theory (for social behavior).
