The Subjective Value of Popularity: a Neural Account of Socially Informed Functional Value and Social Value

The current study examines how popularity affects behaviour through inferences and neural correlates of functional value, social value, and reward value. In a fMRI and behavioural study this research demonstrates that a single popularity cue evokes different types of value, that influence behaviour dependent upon consumers’ focus.
