CPC Innovations in Population Science Seminar: Peter Bearman

Mann Library Rm 102

The neural signatures of social life

Given the importance and complexity of the social networks in which we are embedded it makes sense to think that the effectively navigating interactions within these networks requires efficient mechanisms for processing complex social information about network members. This ability is so important that it may be among the foremost computational challenges that influenced our evolution, particularly the dramatic development of our “social brains.” This talk considers a set of findings from socializing cognitive social neuroscience that captures neural and social network data at multiple time points for interacting groups.
