Abstract iii Early in my second year of graduate school in 2008, I was taking a class in Machine Learning, where lectures were often interrupted by questions from an enthusiastic student on the opposite side of the room from where I sat. The student’s questions were always interesting, frequent, provocative, and very loud. After class one day, I met this student walking back from our class to Baxter Hall where both of our offices were located. The student was Antonio Rangel, who became my thesis advisor shortly after he convinced me in forty-five seconds that he had an interesting project for me to work on. Every day since then, without fail, Antonio has pushed me and encouraged me to pursue my ideas and research in neurofinance. His commitment and devotion to developing my skills as a successful and thoughtful scientist are unparalleled, and without his contagious enthusiasm and undying support for neuroeconomics, this thesis would not be possible. I owe an equal amount of gratitude to my three other advisors. Peter Bossaerts has always been available to talk about ideas in financial economics and I have learned an immense amount from him through working on a diverse set of papers on the topics of market microstructure (not included in this thesis), behavioral genetics, and neuroimaging. Colin Camerer has been an invaluable source
