The aim of my research is to illustrate a causal connection between the frontoparietal regions of the brain, which are responsible for processing various aspects and the behavior in economic games such as the dictator and ultimatum games. We used neurostimulation methods such as transcranial direct current stimulation in order to stimulate or inhibit the abovementioned regions of the brain. We also use measurement techniques such as electroencephalography (EEG). As a result we can investigate the behavior of the person who makes an offer and also the acceptance of e.g. unfair offers.
