Cognitive neuroscience as a multidisciplinary field, seeks to understand human behavior at the intersection of social, cognitive, and neural spheres of science. Neuroscience can help organizations become more effective by support productivity and employee satisfaction. With this paper, it is aimed to contribute to literature with the potential promise of cognitive side of organizational behavior as synergic young field. The main aim of this paper is to discuss neuroscience techniques and ongoing studies with ethical perception that already existed in the organizational behavior field. This new field has emerged to investigate the cognitive neuroscience of organizational behavior and so, organizational scholars have begun to take note of the potential implications of neuroscience at workplace research, the popularity of new field is attested by recent conferences, special issues of journals. But the theoretical codes of this new science derive from an uneasy embracing of two different field of social behavior: sociobiology and evolutionary psychology on the one hand, and social psychology on the other.
