Neuro Law and Economics
Neuro law and economics is a very young discipline that aims to study law and economics phenomena towards the help of neuroscientific techniques. These studies are the result of bringing together two different approaches that start from different disciplines in order to analyze, in particular, some aspects of the punishment. These two approaches are behavioral and experimental economics and the analyses deriving from the so-called neuro-law. These two disciplines have been developed independently in the last decades and only in the last years they are jointly used to implement scientific analyses of punishment.
