Network-Oriented Modeling of the Interaction of Adaptive Joint Decision Making, Bonding and Mirroring
In this paper the interaction of joint decision making, Hebbian learning of mirroring and bonding is analysed. An adaptive network model is designed, and scenarios are explored using this computational model. The results show that Hebbian learning of mirroring connections plays an important role in decision making, and that bonding can be necessary to make a joint decision, but also that conversely joint decisions strengthen the bonding and the mirroring connections.
