Sam Fraser: “Factors moderating the effect of hunger on human cooperation”

In Students by General Account

Having previously established a link between hunger and the frequency with which humans cooperate, using economic games where individual and group benefits are in conflict, I now plan to look at several factors which may moderate this effect.

These factors include the type of resource available, the level of risk individuals are willing to take to maximise resources, and the value they place on maintaining a positive reputation.
