New paper on neuroeconomics and neurology

My collaborators at UCSF's Memory and Aging Center just had a paper accepted in Brain, where we applied neuroeconomic tools to characterize behavioral deficits in frontotemporal dementia patients. Behavioral and social dysfunctions are some of the most difficult to capture quantitatively, even though they are often the most visible symptoms to family and loved ones. Hopefully we will be able to finally make some inroads given all that we have learned in neuroeconomics in the past decade.
