The paper discusses the relation between experimental economics and the cognitive approach, after having outlined the chief characteristics of the major lines of research in both areas, also with reference to the historical development and to methodological issues. Then the attention is focused on the relevance of the experimental method for the analysis of learning and coordination processes under uncertainty. Finally a few examples will be supplied of the application of the experimental method to cognitive economics.
