Behavioural finance seeks to understand to understand markets and investment decisions. It has traditionally done so by concentrating on the mental shortcuts investors make (heuristics) and the way they perceive and process markets, firms and investment opportunities (behavioural biases).
Neurofinance has begun to illuminate the physiology behind the traditional explanations used in Behavioural Finance. We will present recent findings showing how the chemistry of the brain can be used to gain a deeper appreciation of Behavioural Finance and, through this, markets and investors.
