20th Annual Dynamical Neuroscience Satellite Symposium

Collective Cognition:  The Neurophysiology of Social Neuroscience

Preceding the 42nd Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience

Thursday and Friday, October 11-12, 2012

Harrah's Hotel, 228 Poydras Street, New Orleans, LA 70130

The study of social behavior presents unique challenges to the neuroscientist because it requires us to move beyond the study of individual brains.  Traditional behavioral and systems neuroscience focuses on an individual, manipulates stimuli affecting that individual, and measures the neurobiological outcome of those manipulations at the individual level.  Physiological correlates of individual behavior can be obtained in real-time, using single unit recording, EEG/ERP's, fMRI BOLD, or PET.  Dynamical neuroscientists have been examining temporal sequencing and correlated activity within a single brain for decades.

Social neuroscience has recently begun to investigate the complex biological bases of human social cognitive and behavioral abilities, but the majority of studies have focused on studying brains in isolation using paradigms that examine social interactions from afar.  Consequently, the two-way neural correlates and physiological underpinnings of real-time social interaction have remained elusive.  This symposium will provide a platform for discussion of the challenges involved in understanding interacting brains and a window into the future of social neuroscience and its potential enhancement via computational and dynamical systems modeling.
