In my dissertation project, I investigate neural information processing mechanisms, particularly value integration, in the context of sustainable finance decisions. According to the literature, altruistic/prosocial motives play a role in these decisions in addition to economic motives. In the brain, the regions associated with economic values (e.g. during financial decisions) differ from the regions associated with altruistic values. However, the final subjective value for the decision is represented in the same brain region in both cases, so that the question arises whether and how the value signals from the different regions are integrated into a final value and lastly, if prediction accuracy can be improved as compared to common models by use of that knowledge.
