The level of cooperation declines and is independent of the network of contacts. Fraction of cooperative actions (level of cooperation) per round during the experiment (A) and the control (B) for both networks and histograms of cooperative actions in the lattice (C) and the heterogeneous network (D). The histograms (C and D) show the number of subjects ranked according to the fraction of cooperative actions that they perform along the experiment in the two networks. PNAS.
