Sarah Brosnan, Georgia State University

Sarah Brosnan is an associate professor of psychology and a member of the Neuroscience Institute at Georgia State University. Her work explores mechanisms underlying cooperation, reciprocity, inequity, and other economic decisions in nonhuman primates from an evolutionary perspective.

One of Brosnan's current projects is a NSF funded investigation comparing three species of nonhuman primates and humans in their response to a cooperative economic game. Currently Brosnan and her colleagues are investigating whether these species will cooperate when given the opportunity to do so and how factors such as partner identity, equity in payoffs, and the context of the task affect their performance.
