Human behaviour is difficult to capture in simple and elegant models. In economics and game theory an individual is reduced to a set of beliefs, preferences and possible actions, with the mind ruling the body; in psychology and neurosciences, hormones emotions and other physical impulses control humans, with rationality playing a much smaller part. In an attempt to show both elements can be modeled together Ben Loerakker investigates the role of emotions in leadership and studies the effects of partner choice based on physical characteristics, in the context of cooperation.
