http://www.unimib.it/link/news.jsp?7586409585686507198 this project aims at shedding light on the largely unexplored relationship between human brain and the nature of punishing behaviour - the ‘neuroeconomics of punishment’. In particular, we want to test the hypothesis that so called ‘mirror neurons' - whose key feature is that they activate both when a person performs an action and when the same person observes others performing it - can be seen as the neurological analogue of empathy and that they are at work when fairness-related behaviour like third-party punishment occurs. Consequently, we will attempt to answer the question: is it possible that neutral third parties react to unfairness because they feel inside their brain what the victims feel? The study will be performed through neuroeconomic experiments based on transcranic magnetic stimulation (rTMS).
