About this Research Topic
The aim of this Research Topic in Frontiers in Decision Neuroscience is to open a forum for the subfield of decision science that focuses on comparing and contrasting decision making in people of different ages. We hope to bring together empirical work from behavioral computational, cognitive neuroscience, genomic, as well as animal research that investigate age similarities or differences in decision making. Focused reviews that integrate existing evidence and provide new theoretical insights are also welcome.
Note: Publication fees for Research Topics are reduced from standard Frontiers rates (http://www.frontiersin.org/decision_neuroscience/fees) and this discounted rate will be further subsidized by the Scientific Research Network on Decision Neuroscience and Aging to a final fee of €700 / $1000. Publishing grants are also available for authors unable to bear publication costs.
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. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
