Une hybridation de l'économie et des neurosciences a-t-elle un sens ?
Neuroeconomics is a recent extension of behavioural economics which aims at uncovering the brain mechanisms and activities that mediate regular and anomalous economic behaviour. Gul and Pesendorfer  have launched a critique against the neuroeconomic research programme, based on what they argue is the incommensurability of the theoretical constructs employed by each respective discipline. To respond to their argument we envision and illustrate several ?directions of instruction? between neuroscience and economics, and provide counterexamples to their critique. This disciplinary cross-talk suggests that neuroeconomics may play a crucial conceptual and methodological role in fostering the unity of behavioural sciences.
