10. April 2019 : New publication on how social priming affects our own actions’ feedback processing

The social situation affects how we process feedback about our actions.
Front Psychol 10:361, section Cognition

Humans achieve their goals in joint action tasks either by cooperation or competition. In the present study, we investigated the neural processes underpinning error and monetary rewards processing in such cooperative and competitive situations. We used electroencephalography (EEG) and analyzed event-related potentials (ERPs) triggered by feedback in both social situations.

In sum, our results replicate previous studies about the FRN (feedback-related-negativity) and extend them by comparing neurophysiological responses to positive and negative outcomes in a task that simultaneously engages two participants in competitive and cooperative situations.
