Co-operative Behaviour: Neuroscience Insights

Co-operative Behaviour:  Neuroscience Insights | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Co-operation is essential for the functioning of human societies — and several current public policy initiatives, including health and lifestyle and environmental campaigns, depend upon it. Many attempts to persuade people to co-operate and collaborate, however, fail — or succeed for only a limited time. Understanding the neural mechanisms for co-operation can help in developing more effective ways of promoting collective behaviour and in designing policies to achieve societal aims.

More insights from neuroscience about how to collaborate effectively.

John Thurlbeck, FCMI FRSA's curator insight, May 7, 2014 3:05 AM

As a developing leader this is the way forward! Effective collaboration makes for great successes and mutuality is a wonderful principle to anchor your leadership behaviour upon! Thanks to David Hain for the great link!

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, May 11, 2014 2:12 AM
Co-operation with others can be inherently satisfying — and that it’s not contingent on the prospect of material reward. (A 2004 experiment, for example, found increased activity in the reward system of the brain for mutual co-operation decisions, even when controlling for the amount of money earned by the decision itself.)Playing games with another human being is more satisfying (rewarding) than playing with a computer partner.The learning of co-operative behaviour is partly dependent on reciprocation — we tend to co-operate, over the longer term, with those who behave well towards us.Co-operation can be motivated by the anticipation of guilt — activity in regions of the brain associated with ‘negative affective states’ increases when people match the expectations of other players.The ability to understand the mental states of others, traditionally referred to as ‘theory of mind’, plays an important part in co-operation.Co-operation is context-specific, depending partly on prior knowledge of others and their trustworthiness.

Behavior and U.S. culture of independence

Behavior and U.S. culture of independence | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

Americans may like to consider themselves altruistic folks who are motivated to do deeds that benefit others. But for many, a new study says just the opposite is true.

Stanford University psychologists have found that because the United States' culture stresses independence, that message strongly influences how people behave toward others.
