The goal of this book is to introduce organizational researchers and practitioners to the role of neuroscience in building theory, research methodologies and practical applications. On one hand, we aim to be a useful resource for researchers who look to become more familiar with organizational neuroscience or incorporate its concepts and methods into their own research. On the other hand, we provide insight for practitioners, who can envision neuroscience applications as a means of expanding their own professional toolboxes. The book is in two sections. First, we introduce general issues that cover the domain of organizational neuroscience, including the nature of the overall field and theoretical and methodological considerations. This section also addresses practical implications, especially for development processes. Second, we explore neuroscience influences on certain topics, such as leadership, emotion/affect, teams, ethics and moral reasoning and organizational justice. We conclude by pondering the future of organizational neuroscience; including ethical, social and legal issues, as well as the potential limitations of this emerging field.

After introducing the field of organizational neuroscience, the collection proposes a theoretical framework for locating neural processes appropriately within the wider context of organizational cognitive activities, considers the value of neuroimaging technologies for organizational research, and applies the opposing-domains hypothesis to task positive network and default mode network thinking. The findings of neurological scanning indicate that effective leaders can be distinguished neurologically, and neurofeedback techniques show promise as a new tool for developing leadership qualities in managers and business students. Six of the 12 chapters are co-authored by the editors. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution.
