A coordination game is one in which two players are rewarded for making the same choice from the same set of alternatives. The ability of humans to tacitly coordinate effectively is based on the identification of pronounced solutions associated with salient features attracting the player’s attention. These prominent solutions are referred to as focal points. Game theory fails to account for how people make decisions in tacit coordination games, and human behavior in these games cannot be explained by a single theory. One of the accepted theories for explaining human behavior is level-k theory. This theory assumes that each player has a different level of reasoning by which she assesses the behavior of other players in the game and makes strategic decisions based on that assessment. In Previous studies, we have found an association between the players’ cognitive load as reflected by EEG power and the level-k during the coordination game. The goal of the current study was to examine the relationship between alpha frequency and its sub-bands and level-k during a tacit coordination game in the context of semantic processing.
