An fMRI study investigating the determinants of cooperation in social dilemmas.
This fMRI study aims to gain insight into how the neural substrate of cooperation is determined by environmental factors and personality. We hypothesize that prosocials, due to a more sensitive social brain, are more easily influenced by subtle environmental cues. We further investigate if judging a (non)cooperative partner activates emotional processing in prosocials, while it is cognitively processed by proselfs.
