Social Interaction Effects on Reward and Cognitive Abilities in Monkeys

J. R. Stevens, M. D. Hauser

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Reward processing in both the physical and social domains presents different problems, recruiting different cognitive mechanisms. When acquiring rewards in the absence of affiliative or competitive social interactions, reward processing is influenced by cognitive attributes such as processing reward properties, number, and timing, as well as impulsivity, inhibitory control, memory, and theory of mind. Many of these mechanisms also provide the cognitive substrates for complex social interactions involving rewards. In particular, forms of cooperation such as reciprocity and punishment may rarely occur in primates because individuals lack the requisite cognitive abilities needed to implement these strategies and reap their associated rewards.
