Washington, July 6 ( ANI ): When deciding whether to cooperate with others, people do not act thinking in their own reward, as had been previously believed, but rather individuals are more influenced by their own mood at the time and by the number of individuals with whom they have cooperated before, a new study has revealed.

Nowak and Sigmund applied Pavlov and other tactics to the "prisoner's dilemma;' in which two players can either cooperate or act selfishly A player receives the most points for acting selfishly when the other cooperates, slightly fewer points if both cooperate, fewer still in cases of dual selfishness, and no points for cooperating when the other acts selfishly
In this game, a Pavlov player cooperates only if both participants chose the same alternative - either cooperating or not - in their prior encounter.
