What is neuroeconomics doing? This issue of Games and Economic Behavior collects a set of papers that apply the concepts, methods, and technical tools of neuroscience to economic analysis. This is what has by now come to be called neuroeconomics (NE). If one wants to understand what NE is, then the most useful way is probably to look at what NE does in concrete research, so we invite the curious reader to choose one of the articles and begin to read. But if one is questioning the method or even the usefulness of this line of research, then an introduction may be the right place for a discussion. In particular this is true if one is trying to understand what this developing field of research is trying to accomplish in the future. The main content of this introduction will be an attempt to provide a possible answer to this question. In a different paper (Glimcher and Rustichini, 2004) Paul Glimcher and I have tried to provide our view on what neuroeconomics is technically, what methods it uses, and how researchers in the area are in general planning to deal with the classical themes of economics, decision theory and game theory in the first place. A different view is presented in Camerer et al. (2005). In summary, I think the following is the main point. At the very least, neuroeconomics provides new data in addition to those we have available from theoretical, empirical, and experimental research on human behavior.
