Recent advances in neurophysiological methods are providing IS researchers with new research opportunities. We deployed electroencephalograms (EEG) analyses to compare learning within two organizational forms: computer-mediated and face-to-face decision teams. We collected demographic, psychometric, simultaneous parallel EEG, and performance data from 118 undergraduate students who performed the Ethical Decision Challenge© as part of a face-to-face or a computer-mediated team. Organizational learning was derived from performance data registered at three points during the experiment: (1) individually prior to group discussion, (2) collectively as a group consensus, and (3) individually following the group discussion. The results revealed a significant difference between learning ability between face-to-face and computer-mediated team members, thus supporting propositions of media richness theory. Further, a comparison of brain patterns between face-to-face team members and computer-mediated team members revealed a significant difference in neural activity. Our findings also confirm the role of the left temporal lobe in learning and performance.
