This course is designed to give students a working knowledge of current findings in the emerging field of social neuroscience, the study of brain systems underlying social behaviour. Students will cover basic neuroanatomy and will review research on brain systems underlying face recognition, emotion recognition, attachment, theory of mind, sexual attraction, love and neuroeconomics.
