This chapter summarizes the discussions in the preceding chapters. It highlights four observations that are critical for the first revision of economics by neuroeconomics: reference dependence; cortical areas do not represent the absolute values of anything; stochasticity in choice; and the impact of learning on choice. It also identifies six huge unsolved problems in neuroeconomics.
