Social Cognition and Social Neuroscience RSS

Traditionally, researchers in social cognition attempted to understand how people think about themselves and the social world through examining how they select, interpret, remember, and use information. More modern social cognition, however, also examines how motivation, cognition and emotion interact in bringing about behavior, broadly defined. Researchers in social neuroscience look at the brain processes underlying social interaction and social cognition. These researchers ask similar questions, although they may have different perspectives, use different methods, and look at different populations. The books in the Oxford Series in Social Cognition and Social Neuroscience aim to bring together these different perspectives and methods to better understand the cognitive mechanisms of higher mental processes, broadly defined to include motivation and emotion, and also extending to developmental, ethological, and clinical research.
