Missing emotions: the Z-axis of collective behavior.

Bentley et al. bypass the relevance of emotions in decision-making, resulting in a possible over-simplification of behavioral types. We propose integr...

Mapping collective emotions to make sense of collective behavior.
While Bentley et al.'s model is very appealing, in this commentary we argue that researchers interested in big data and collective behavior, including the way humans make decisions, must account for the emotional factor. We investigate how daily choi

The ecology of collective behavior.
Similar patterns of interaction, such as network motifs and feedback loops, are used in many natural collective processes, probably because they have evolved independently under similar pressures. Here I consider how three environmental constraints m

Collective behavior.
The resurgence of interest in collective behavior is in large part due to tools recently made available for conducting laboratory experiments on groups, statistical methods for analyzing large data sets reflecting social interactions, the rapid growt

How group-based emotions are shaped by collective emotions: evidence for emotional transfer and emotional burden.
Extensive research has established the pivotal role that group-based emotions play in shaping intergroup processes. The underlying implicit assumption in previous work has been that these emotions reflect what the rest of the group feels (i.e., colle

Mapping collective behavior--beware of looping.
We discuss ambiguities of the two main dimensions of the map proposed by Bentley and colleagues that relate to the degree of self-reflection the observed agents have upon their behavior. This self-reflection is a variant of the "looping effect" which

Determination of collective behavior of the financial market.
In this paper, we adopt the network synchronization to measure the collective behavior in the financial market, and then analyze the factors that affect the collective behavior. Based on the data from the Chinese financial market, we find that the cl

The Influence of Collective Behavior on Pacing in Endurance Competitions.
A number of theoretical models have been proposed in recent years to explain pacing strategies observed in individual competitive endurance events. These have typically related to the internal regulatory processes that inform the making of decisions

Flagella-induced transitions in the collective behavior of confined microswimmers.
Bacteria are usually studied in free-swimming planktonic state or in sessile biofilm state. However, little is known about intermediate states where variability in the environmental conditions and/or energy supply to the flagellar propulsive system a

The missing heritability of behavior: the search continues.
Genetic variation altering behavior is elusive. This commentary discusses implications for the search for "missing heritability" posed by a unified series of studies from the Minnesota Center for Twin and Family Research. Endophenotypes are measured

Starvation-induced collective behavior in C. elegans.
We describe a new type of collective behavior in C. elegans nematodes, aggregation of starved L1 larvae. Shortly after hatching in the absence of food, L1 larvae arrest their development and disperse in search for food. In contrast, after two or more
