2018-02-22T14:40:37Z (GMT) by Ryan Watkins Doug Leigh
Adam Morris from Harvard University's Department of Psychology talks with us about his game theory research into why people engage in retribution with little regard for its effectiveness, yet they respond to punishment from others with flexibility based on costs and benefits. He co-authored the article "<a href="http://www.pnas.org/content/114/39/10396.full" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Evolution of Flexibility and Rigidity in Retaliatory Punishment</a>" with James MacGlashan, Michael Littman, and Fiery Cushman. The article was published in the <em><a href="http://www.pnas.org/" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences</a></em> on September 26, 2017, in vol. 114, no. 39.
