In this study we measured simultaneously by EEG hyperscannings the neuroelectric activity in 6 couples of subjects during the performance of the "Chicken's game", derived from game theory. The simultaneous recording of the EEG in couples of interacting subjects allows to observe and model directly the neural signature of human interactions in order to understand the cerebral processes generating and generated by social cooperation or competition. Results suggested that the one of the most consistently activated structure in this particular social interaction paradigm is the left orbitofrontal cortex. Connectivity results also showed a significant involvement of the orbitofrontal regions of both hemispheres across the observed population. Taken together, results confirms that the study of the brain activities in humans during social interactions can take benefit from the simultaneous acquisition of brain activity during such interaction.
