This book collects eighty-two of the foundational articles in the emerging discipline of social neuroscience.The book addresses five main areas of research: multilevel integrative analyses of social behavior, using the tools of neuroscience, cognitive science, and social science to examine specific cases of social interaction- the relationships between social cognition and the brain, using noninvasive brain imaging to document brain function in various social situations- rudimentary biological mechanisms for motivation, emotion, and attitudes, and the shaping of these mechanisms by social factors- the biology of social relationships and interpersonal processes- and social influences on biology and health.
