Armenian origin neuroeconomist, Varoozh Sahakian, holds D.B.A., Ph.D degrees in Economics & a Ph.D in Sociology. His disappointment with thetraditional neoclassical economic theory top-down"macho-biased" approach to homo-economicus, alongwith his belief that homo-sapines choicebehavior & decision-making is limited mainly by his/her biology, or in other words, economics actually is apart of biology science, motivated him to gather deepknowledge about human bilology, brain & nervoussystem, gender differences, genetic and hormonal &chemical functions. The "Female brain unearths the neoclassicaleconomic theory biases/ anomalies, " book is the first oftwo books the author has written about this newborn, yet, burgeoning field of "Neuro-economics, " a highlypromising human science approach to understandingthe neurobiological bases of human choice behaviorand decision-making processes. The author presents a very promising andblossoming scientific field, which portrays a moreaccurate and real & candid picture of human naturethan neoclassical reductionist economic theory.In many aspects, neuroeconomics approach is apositive, constructive one, helping to explain thehuman capacity for kindness and cooperation andthe centrality of fairness to social emotions, morality &norms (by-passed by many Walrasian and neoclassicaladvocates). The book, after all, introduces an economicagent who is not necessarily acquisitive automationconditioned always to narrow self-interest, likeneoclassical economic theory's unisex (macho)or unsex, but can be a female &male, young & olddecision maker. In other words, it introduces a morereal, "whole human:" A 'Homo-Neuro-Economicus.'The most outstanding initiative of the bookis the introduction of a feminist economic theory, its critical approach to the neoclassical economictheory, supported interestingly not only by sociocultural/historical insights but by neuro-biological, psychological, gender, chemical & hormonal evidence, too. The author envisions, that this challengingdiscipline is likely, once for all, to realize Adam Smith & David Hume's dream by providing;"A unified theory of human choice behaviorand decision-making in the forthcoming future."

Seemingly simple behaviours turn out, on reflection, to be discouragingly complex. For many years, cognitive operations such as sensation, perception, comparing percepts to stored models (short-term and long-term memory), decision-making and planning of actions were treated by most neuroscientists as separate areas of research. This was not because the neuroscience community believed these operations to act independently—it is intuitive that any common cognitive process seamlessly interweaves these operations—but because too little was known about the individual processes constituting the full behaviour, and experimental paradigms and data collection methods were not sufficiently well developed to put the processes in sequence in any controlled manner. These limitations are now being overcome in the leading cognitive neuroscience laboratories, and this book is a timely summary of the current state of the art. The theme of the book is how the brain uses sensory information to develop and decide upon the appropriate action, and how the brain determines the appropriate action to optimize the collection of new sensory information. It addresses several key questions. How are percepts built up in the cortex and how are judgments of the percept made? In what way does information flow within and between cortical regions, and what is accomplished by successive (and reverberating) stages of processing? How are decisions made about the percept subsequently acted upon, through their conversion to a response according to the learned criterion for action? How does the predicted or expected sensation interact with the actual incoming flow of sensory signals? The chapters and discussions in the book reveal how answering these questions requires an understanding of sensory–motor loops: our perception of the world drives new actions, and the actions undertaken at any moment lead to a new ‘view’ of the world. This book is a fascinating read for all clinical and experimental psychologists and neuroscientists, as well as anyone interested in how we perceive the world and act within it.

Seize the advantage in every risk decision with the most misunderstood asset you have—human emotion “If you are trying to solve the unsolvable, stop. Read this first and you will learn that the surest path to success will be to start with yourself; solve that conundrum and challenges like understanding how you do and should react to markets will come to be solvable.” —Marvin Zonis, Professor Emeritus, Booth School of Business, The University of Chicago “When it comes to fast-moving global financial markets, professional investors strive to evaluate complex economic conditions from data analysis, economic reasoning, and professional judgment. This is what is taught in business schools. Denise Shull demonstrates how investment decision making is also determined by unconscious emotions and perceptions. Market Mind Games is a fascinating book that proposes a new and unexpected hypothesis about the factors that drive financial decision-making.” —A.G. Malliaris, Professor of Economics and Finance, Loyola University Chicago “Denise Shull wants us to get in touch with our feelings, not to beat our bare chests and utter primordial screams. Far from it—her techniques are focused on making more money.” —Financial Times “Denise Shull’s gem of a book is long overdue. . . .[Market Mind Games] has made the ability to analyze and overcome our unconscious biases and prejudices available to everyone.” —Dr. Donald T. Wargo, Department of Economics, Temple University “Market Mind Games is iconoclastic to say the very least! Pay attention to the last word in the subtitle: risk. This book will change your perspective on how to approach and think about the markets and your life!” —Michael J. Levas, Founder, Senior Managing Principal, and Director of Trading, Olympian Capital Management, LLC “Denise changes the way you look at yourself and investing. Her insights and methods are necessary to succeed in the markets, period.” —Jared Levy, Portfolio Manager and author of Your Options Handbook “Market Mind Games offers a new school of trading psychology. Truly an important work that needs to be on the bookshelf of every serious market participant.” —Mike Bellafiore, author of One Good Trade “Masterful explanation of not only why emotionless trading is a myth, but how we can take advantage of our natural wiring to gain an edge.” —Derek Hernquist, Chief Investment Officer, Integrative Capital, LLC “Shull details ways to learn how you ‘feel’ before you ‘act’ so that your buy, sell, or hold decisions become more successful.” —E. Bernstein, OPUS Trading “A must-read for those who want to make their livelihood as a professional investor, trader, or algorithmic trading developer.” —Larry Tabb, founder and CEO, Tabb Group “Denise Shull enlightens the reader how to effectively unlock one’s psychological capital and translate that awareness into clear and concise investment decisions.” —Grant Mashek, Managing Member, Palm Equity, LLC “Shull’s book is not only a great read but lays out an entirely more effective approach to thinking about any decision that involves the unknown—market related or not.” —Leslie Shaw, Ph.D., Behavioral Economics, and trained psychoanalyst About the Book: What if the mystery of market crashes stems from a simple but total misunderstanding of our own minds? Could everything we think we know about ourselves—intelligence and rationality versus emotion and irrationality—be wildly off the mark? Simply put: yes. With these words, Denise Shull introduces her radical—and supremely rational— approach to risk. Her vision stems from the indisputable fact that human beings can’t make any decision at all without emotion and that emotion gets the first—and last—word when it comes to our perceptions and judgments. Shull should know. She started out managing major accounts for IBM and then chose to research unconscious emotional patterns instead of getting her MBA. Next she became a trader and trading desk manager while continuing to study biopsychology. We are all taught that sidelining our emotions is the best way to make good decisions— Shull declares the converse: emotions inform us. Attempting to control them actually increases the risks we take. Shull advocates treating feelings as data, and she convincingly argues that doing so eradicates the baffling question that repeats itself in our heads after making a poor investing decision: “What was I thinking?” Through a series of “lectures,” Shull logically but engagingly connects emotions, beliefs, and context to our innate reaction to uncertainty and risk (yes, the two are different). In Market Mind Games, she merges more than 20 years of studying risk decisions into a single, astoundingly effective strategy. A reasonable approach to emotion is the best and only way to win the investing game. The methods Shull details in Market Mind Games shake the foundation of conventional market and decision psychology. And, most important, they work.

Gefangen im eigenen Körper. Martin ist zwölf, als ihn eine rätselhafte Krankheit befällt: Er verliert seine Sprache, die Kontrolle über seinen Körper, ist nach wenigen Monaten völlig hilflos. Die Ärzte sagen seinen Eltern, er werde für immer schwerstbehindert bleiben. Was niemand ahnte: Im Kokon seines Körpers verbirgt sich ein schrittweise erwachender Geist und eine zutiefst lebendige Seele. Als Martin aufwacht, kann er nur mit den Augen Lebenszeichen geben. Eine Pflegerin erkennt schließlich, dass er sehr wohl bei Bewusstsein ist und alles um sich herum mitbekommt. Dann endlich erhält er die Hilfe, die er benötigt, um sich ganz ins Leben zurück zu kämpfen. Martin Pistorius erzählt bewegend und absolut authentisch darüber, was ihn in den elf Jahren der Hilflosigkeit am Leben gehalten hat. Sein dramatisches Buch über seine Erfahrungen zeigt, dass mit der Unterstützung einer Familie, die nicht aufgibt und einem großen Lebenswillen sogar Wunder möglich sind.

Viele Menschen glauben, dass die Gründe, die sie daran hindern, erfolgreich zu sein, in ihrer Umwelt zu finden sind. Aber in Wirklichkeit steckt der größte Feind in jedem von uns selbst: unser Ego. Es macht uns blind für unsere Fehler, verhindert, dass wir aus ihnen lernen, und hemmt unsere Entwicklung. Denn gerade in Zeiten, in denen die schamlose Selbstdarstellung in sozialen Netzwerken oder im Reality-TV eine Selbstverständlichkeit ist, liegt die wahre Herausforderung in der Idee, weniger Zeit in das Erzählen der eigenen Größe zu stecken und stattdessen die wirklich wichtigen Missionen des Lebens zu meistern. Mit einer Fülle an Beispielen aus Literatur, Philosophie und Geschichte zeigt Ryan Holiday eindrucksvoll und praxisnah, wie die Überwindung des eigenen Egos zum unnachahmlichen Erfolg verhilft. Bewaffnet mit den Erkenntnissen aus diesem Buch kann sich jeder seinem größten Feind stellen – dem eigenen Ego.
