The ability to from a Theory of Mind (ToM) that is to theorize about others mental states and explain and predict behavior in relation to attributed intentional states, constitutes a hallmark of human cognition. These abilities are multi-faceted and include a variety of different cognitive sub-functions. Here, we focus on decision processes in social contexts and review a number of experimental and computational modeling approaches in this field. We classify experimental accounts and formal

Thereby, we aim at capturing the most relevant variations in ToM-related cognitive sub-functions and highlight the nuances of what broadly is referred to as social decisions processes. Finally, we discuss the most typical neuroimaging findings in light of the categorization results.
