Social Cognitive Neuroscience: Studies in Human and Non-Human Primates
Social cognitive neuroscience is an emerging discipline in the neurosciences. It focuses broadly on how group-living individuals recognize and respond to one another, read and interpret communicative signals, learn from one another's behavior, and make decisions about social interactions. Collectively, these skills enable long-lasting relationships within thriving social communities. When these skills become impaired, such as in autism, prominent social deficits exist and provide research with a rare opportunity for understanding the basic neurobiology of social cognitive functions.
