Academic Article


  • Financial capacity is critical to independent functioning of adults in our society. Yet there is a notable gap in our understanding of the links between brain changes, cognitive changes, and changes in financial ability. An emerging neuroscience of financial capacity investigates the critical neural and cognitive components involved in financial tasks, and helps to explain how financial abilities break down in the presence of injury or disease.
