Altruistic Risk-taking under Threat

Ongoing Project 

How do humans take risk for altruistic or self-interested causes? Do people amplify altruistic risk-taking under threat? Are there physiological mechanisms undertaking altruistic risk-taking? Preliminary results show that altruistic risk-taking is mostly influenced by the perceived benefit to others. Notably, individuals exhibiting altruistic tendencies appear to modulate their skin conductances to inducted fear stressors subconsciously.
