Efecto de la disponibilidad de recursos económicos sobre funciones cognitivas y preferencias sociales

Palabras clave: recursos económicos, funcionamiento cognitivo, decisiones sociales, experimento

Resumen

El objetivo de esta investigación fue analizar de manera experimental el efecto de la disponibilidad de recursos económicos sobre funciones cognitivas y preferencias sociales en estudiantes universitarios. Se condujo un estudio con diseño experimental inter-sujetos en el que participaron 60 estudiantes universitarios. Se comparó el desempeño de participantes expuestos a condiciones de altos y bajos recursos económicos en tareas de desempeño cognitivo (inteligencia fluida y control inhibitorio) y de preferencias sociales (Juego del Ultimátum, con ofertas de distinto grado de justicia. En general, los resultados indicaron que no hubo diferencias significativas entre los participantes de las condiciones de bajos y altos recursos económicos en las funciones cognitivas y preferencias sociales. En cambio, hubo diferencias según sexo en el dominio cognitivo. Se discuten los resultados a la luz de investigaciones previas y se reconocen las principales limitaciones.
