|Outline of Final Research Achievements
Infants expect agents that previously helped another agent to perform egalitarian distributions, but did not held such expectation about agents that previously hindered another agent. We show for the first time that infants’ link agents’ helping and distributive actions. This ability is important because it may help the development of reasoning about agents’ stable moral traits. Results provide support for recent theories on early social evaluation skills and contraint theories on the acquisition of moral competence.
In the adults’ ERP study, participants were informed about characters' social information through their actions. One character then distributed resources fairly or unfairly, and ERP was measured at the end of the distribution. There are three principal finding. First, N200 was significantly affected by fairness. Second, a significant main effect of social information was found for P300, and third, a significant interaction of social information and fairness for LPP.
