About this Research Topic
The consolidation of these two fields that will be seen with the various submissions to this Research Topic will also serve to highlight the utility of a singular organizational cognitive neuroscience. This is a fundamentally important outcome of the Research Topic as the application of neuroscience to address economically relevant behaviours has seen a variety of fields evolve in their own right, such as neuromarketing, neuroeconomics and so forth. The use of neuro-scientific technologies,in particular fMRI, has indeed lead to a bewildering (and somewhat suffocating) proliferation of new approaches, however, the speed of such developments demands that we must proceed carefully with such ventures or risk some fundamental mistakes. The submissions to this Research Topic will attempt to consolidate the new neuroscience based approaches and in doing so highlight the importance of this approach in helping us to understand human social behaviour in general. Submissions are welcomed from a range of perspectives and techniques – we encourage theoretical commentaries that address various questions as well as original reports. Taken together the submissions to this Research Topic will provide a framework for scholars within the neurosciences who wish to explore the further the opportunities that the study of organisational behaviour may provide.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements.
