This chapter describes several novel lines of research, which have focused on social decision-making and perspective taking across childhood and adolescent development using experimental games. It summarizes results from developmental studies using variations of the Dictator Game, the Ultimatum Game, and the Trust Game. A special focus is given to the way cognitive control and perspective taking are implicated in social decision-making, and how these skills develop across adolescence. In addition, it describes insights from cognitive neuroscience studies concentrating on the role of brain regions important for cognitive control and perspective taking, in social decision-making in children, adolescents and adults. Together, the studies demonstrate a consistent pattern of both increasing strategic motivations and other-oriented concerns in social decision-making across development. The combination of brain and behavior measures has the advantage of allowing for a deeper understanding of the separable processes involved in the emergence of advanced forms of social decision-making.

Keywords:   social decision-making, adolescent development, cognitive control, strategic motivations, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), temporal parietal junction (TPJ)
