Neuroeconomics: Cardinal Utility in the Orbitofrontal Cortex?

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

8 Scopus citations

New electrophysiological recordings in primates performing economic choices suggest a neurological substrate for cardinal utility, a finding that economists should perhaps take note of.
