What top-50 programs are there for people interested in psychoeconomics, which studies how psychology causes people to act irrationally. Does this fall underneath behavioral economics? Because I've heard several economist refer to psychoeconomics as a sub discipline on its own.

I think psychoeconomics is just another name for behavioral economics. Perhaps the seperate subfield you're thinking of is neuroeconomics?

Though note that several of their faculty have recently moved to California (http://chronicle.com/daily/2007/07/2007072705n.htm?rss)...

Caltech and Berkeley are known for having strong experimental and behavioural fields. You might try there...
