Neural Prediction of Market-Level Crowdfunding Outcomes

In this paper, we present a real-world scenario in which neural data predicts market-level behavior significantly better than traditional behavioral methods. This is the first work to assess the neuropsychological processes implicated in the crowdfunding marketplace. These findings highlight the ability of neuropsychological inferences to scale to the aggregate level.
