To cheat or not to cheat: Cognitive control processes override our moral default

Welcome to the repository for our paper entitled 'Cognitive control increases honesty in cheaters but cheating in those who are honest'


In this study, we combined neuroimaging with a novel paradigm that pioneers in measuring the neural mechanisms underlying an honest participant’s decision to cheat and, conversely, a cheater’s decision to be honest.

Here, you can find the neural data, behavioral data, analysis scripts and stimuli used in this project. In addition, the plots resulting from our analysis were uploaded in this repository.
