Behavioral Sciences

Behavioral Sciences



Behavioural science, also known as behavioural economics and looks at the subject of human actions. It encapsulates multiple fields of study, including cognitive-neuroscience, psychology and economics as well as the behavioural aspects of biology, law, psychiatry and political science. Behavioural science studies human behaviour, specifically how humans really make decisions in the real-world.

In particular, behavioural science studies the way that emotions, the environment and social factors influence our decisions. Behavioural science is particularly interested in how heuristics, biases and framing can lead us to make “irrational” decisions.
