The Neural Mechanisms Behind Social Decision Making, Cooperation and Aggression

Researchers will present findings about the neural mechanisms behind some social behaviors, ranging from aggression to social decision making.

Humans, primates, and many other animals are innately social, spending much of their lifetimes in the presence of other individuals, but little is known about the neural mechanisms that generate social behaviors. Recent advances offer insight into neural circuits and mechanisms that underlie social decision-making, cooperation, and aggression. The studies are being presented at Neuroscience 2017, the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience and the world’s largest source of emerging news about brain science and health.
