It has been argued that one dimension of the cycle of poverty is that poverty is a state of chronic stress and that chronic stress impairs decision-making [1]. These poor decisions, made under chronic stress, might include carrying high-interest loans, failure to buy health insurance, gambling or drug use. As such, these decisions can contribute to...

Delay-discounting studies in neuroscience, psychology, and economics have been mostly focused on concepts of self-control, reward evaluation, and discounting. Another important relationship to consider is the link between intertemporal choice and time perception. We presented 50 college students with timing tasks on the range of seconds to minutes...

This paper examines how the group membership fee influences the formation of groups and the cooperation rate within the socialized groups. We found that monetary transactions do not ruin the establishment of social ties and the formation of group relations.

Delay-discounting studies in neuroscience, psychology, and economics have been mostly focused on concepts of self-control, reward evaluation, and discounting. Nevertheless, scholars have argued that it is crucial to combine intertemporal choice and time perception research. Following preregistration, we presented 50 college students with timing exe...
Preprint
Delay-discounting studies in neuroscience, psychology and economics have been mostly focused on concepts of self-control, reward evaluation and discounting. In the meantime, the link between intertemporal choice and time perception has been relatively under-investigated. Compared to the extensive literature on delay discounting, only a handful of s...
Article
Individual differences in delay-discounting correlate with important real world outcomes, for example education, income, drug use, and criminality. As such, delay-discounting has been extensively studied by economists, psychologists and neuroscientists to reveal its behavioral and biological mechanisms in both human and non-human animal models. How...

A characteristic feature of the global climate change dilemma is interdependence between the underlying economic development that drives anthropogenic climate change—typically modelled as a common pool resource dilemma1,2—and the subsequent dilemma arising from the need to mitigate the negative effects of climate change, often modelled as a public...

Chapter
The standard economic utility function considers defection to be the dominant strategy in prisoners’ dilemma. Yet, in experiments, cooperative behavior is often observed even in one-shot games. Recent research suggests that framing as well as the substantive domain, i.e. where decision-makers act, matters and impacts outcomes. In this paper, we inv...

Individual’s intertemporal preferences in the lab are predictive of important real life outcomes [1]. Despite a huge multi-disciplinary literature on delay discounting, there remains two key differences in methods across species: • Verbal [2] vs. Nonverbal [3] stimuli, • Long (days, months) [4] vs. Short (minutes, seconds) [5,6] delays. Our main go...

Human behavior is greatly influenced by the social context. The current study on men' and women's cooperative behavior investigated the influence of long-term and short-term effects of socializing in group. The repeated Prisoner's dilemma carried out in groups of 6 participants was used as the main experimental situation. The differences were found...

This paper investigates how the group membership fee influences the cooperation rate within the groups formed through the socialization. Our previous findings suggest that socialization, or social interactions in groups, create sociality and, therefore, establish a society with sustained cooperation and fairness. In line with Social Identity Theory...

Technical Report
The recent Paris agreement has increased optimism that climate change might be successfully mitigated through international agreement. However, the commitments of countries are unenforceable. Therefore domestic political will, including on the part of citizens to make regular sacrifices, will be required in order for countries to meet these commitm...

This research investigates how variation in sociality, or the degree to which one feels belonging to a group, affects the propensity for participation in collective action. By bringing together rich models of social behavior from social psychology with decision modeling techniques from economics, these mechanisms can ultimately foster cooperation i...

Efficient brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are in need for knowledge about human brain that interacts, plays games, and socializes with other brains. A breakthrough can be achieved by revealing the microfoundations of prosocial actions such as fairness, cooperation, and the public goods provision at the cost of individual gain. Building upon our pr...

Every day we face not only certain risks, but also risky and non-risky decisions of people surrounding us. How do we make our decision to take risk or not? Do we gain extra utility from favorable payoff comparison or from conforming to the decisions of others? We test social conformity in decisions under risk using independent lotteries, therefore,...

In the past few years humanity finds it hard to balance between real and virtual life. Even some decisions that were previously taken in front of a laptop now move to smartphones and tablets. Recent studies confirm our pure conjectures that human behavior in the virtual life is drastically different from the one in the real life situations. Thus, e...

This paper investigates how variation of sociality, i.e. ability to organize in groups voluntarily affects the propensity for participation in collective action. The main goal is to make collective action mechanisms better by bringing together some of the rich models of social behavior from social psychology with decision modeling techniques from e...

Misery loves company. In this paper we find that inequity aversion (the change in behavior out of a desire to avoid unequal outcomes) can alter risk attitudes and, in particular, can mitigate loss aversion (the change in behavior and risk attitudes out of desire to avoid losses). Essentially, having someone to take a loss with removes some of the p...

Full-text available
In the recent literature, several hypotheses have been offered to explain patterns of human behavior in social environments. In particular, these patterns include 'prosocial' ones, such as fairness, cooperation, and collective good provision. Psychologists suggest that these prosocial behaviors are driven not by miscalculations, but by salience of...

Purpose – This paper aims to study the value of sociality. Recent experimental evidence has brought to light that the assumptions of the Prospect Theory by Kahneman and Tversky do not hold in the proposed substantive domain of “sociality”. In particular, the desire to be a part of the social environment, i.e. the environment where individuals make...

What evidence is there that Ukraine has made a successful transition to a competitive political system embodying free and fair elections? Several indicators of fraud developed and used previously to assess elections elsewhere are applied to official precinct-level returns of Ukraine's 2010 presidential contest. Asking if either candidate benefitted...

Recent experimental evidence brought to light that the assumptions of the Prospect Theory by Kahneman and Tversky do not hold in the proposed substantive domain of "sociality". In particular, the desire to be a part of the social environment, i.e. the environment where individuals make decisions among their peers, is not contingent on the framing....

The relationship between trade and democracy according to the broad scholarship is controversial. The most significant advance in this field is empirical. However, the empirical tests that lack sound theoretical foundations imply correlation and not causation. This paper resolves the puzzle of democracy-trade literature, i.e. instability of democra...

Question
1. We can try to avoid some of these problems by pre-screening participants for drugs.
2. Also we started a more extensive search on the relative amount of hormones that can have an effect and, whether it's possible to determine the extent of impact. Any suggestions?
3. We were suggested to do something during the pretreatment procedure of samples before loading into the reading plate, but we still don't know what to do. We seek your advice on this matter.

Our approach to studying election fraud includes searching fraud “fingerprints” in official returns rather than relying on surveys or observers of elections. This strategy allows to distinguish stolen votes, artificially inflated vote totals, etc. due to heavy administrative control, regional influence, or something more benign.
