Abstract: In this thesis we present a tool for studying human behavior using agent-based modeling combined with game theory. With the help of the software Netlogo, and using the PECS reference model, we have implemented a tool for studying human behaviour based on decisions done playing to Prisoner's Dilemma, a classical game theory paradox, by using an agent-based model. We have summarized the personality of agents in ve di erent types, and by a given repertoire of possible actions, we have made agents play by using a set of rules for observing its behaviour. The experiment consist on see how agents decide whether cooperate or defect its opponent, based on their initial configuration and the in uence of each component by assigning different weights, and to demonstrate the feasibility of a tool that combine game theory, PECS reference model and agent-based modelling for studying human behaviour and use it as starting point for future studies.
