About Us / About the NEU Interest Group

Domain Statement

The Organizational Neuroscience (NEU) interest group encourages knowledge generation through theory development and/or empirical evidence pertaining to the neural mechanisms, as well as other biologically-based phenomena, associated with behavior and actions in the workplace. We broadly define organizational neuroscience as brain-related phenomena, including biological/physiological processes, that are innervated by the central nervous system (e.g., heartrate). Concurrently, the interest group seeks to understand how the environment, culture, and institutions can affect organizational actors’ behavior through nervous system functioning. By considering neuroscience at different levels of analysis in organizations (i.e., micro, meso, macro), we encourage interdisciplinarity and multi-methods research. Moreover, we stress ethical considerations when using neuroscience and other biologically-based technologies in workplace research.
