Social And Affective Neuroscience

This research line aims to uncover how the brain affords cognitive processing in social contexts. Some of the central questions are:

  1. Which factors bias our decisions in social bargaining contexts?

  2. How is cognitive control applied in social scenarios?

  3. Are social attention cues (such as gaze) special?
