The role of emotion in decision-making: A cognitive neuroeconomic approach towards understanding sexual risk behavior

The role of emotion in decision-making: A cognitive neuroeconomic approach towards understanding sexual risk behavior

    Abstract Models of decision-making usually focus on cognitive, situational, and socio-cultural variables in accounting for human perfor- mance.

In this paper, we review these…
