Kevin McCabe is a professor of economics, law, and neuroscience at George Mason University, and he is director of GMU’s Center for the Study of Neuroeconomics. Professor McCabe learned to do economic theory with Professor Beth Allen at the University of Pennsylvania, and after receiving his Ph.D. in 1985 and taking a job as an assistant professor at the University of Arizona, he learned experimental economics with Professors Vernon Smith and Stephen Rassenti. In 1997 Professor McCabe became an IFREE Distinguished Scholar in Neuroeconomics. This scholarship allowed him to develop a research program with his co-authors in neuroeconomics. A neuroeconomics experiment allows economists to take noninvasive measurements of brain activity before, during, and after a person makes an economic decision. These measurements can then be used to test computational theories of the brain with the broader goal of understanding how emergent brain computations interact with emergent institutional computations to produce economic activity.
