Static network structure can stabilize human cooperation | PNAS

Human populations are both extremely cooperative and highly structured. Mathematical models have shown that fixed network interaction structures can lead to cooperation under certain conditions, by allowing cooperators to cluster together. Here, we provide empirical evidence of this phenomenon. We explore how different fixed social network structures can promote cooperation using economic game...

  • Sparse and distributed coding of episodic memory in neurons of the human hippocampus | PNAS

    The ability to form episodic memories in rapid succession depends on the hippocampus, but how do hippocampal neurons represent such memories? Most neurocomputational models envision a sparse distributed coding scheme in which individual neurons each participate in the coding of a few memories, and...

  • Harm to others outweighs harm to self in moral decision making | PNAS

    Concern for the welfare of others is a key component of moral decision making and is disturbed in antisocial and criminal behavior. However, little is known about how people evaluate the costs of others’ suffering. Past studies have examined people’s judgments in hypothetical scenarios, but there...

  • Bargaining and fairness | PNAS

    The idea that human morality might be the product of evolution is not popular. The reason is partly that the moral principles that actually govern our day-to-day behavior have been idealized in a way that makes a natural origin seem impossible. This paper puts the case for a more down-to-earth...
