Intelligence profoundly affects social behavior. Evidence will be provided on how intelligence affects the rate of cooperation in repeated games, social cohesion in school environments, attitude to risk, and educational achievement. We will see how information processing of rewards in the brain can provide an explanation of this behavior, and examine some of the potential genetic determinants of these pathways.
