Neurologists, Neuroscientists, Psychologists, Social Scientists
Social Neuroscience features original empirical Research Papers as well as targeted Reviews, Commentaries and Fast Track Brief Reports that examine how the brain mediates social behavior, social cognition, social interactions and relationships, group social dynamics, and related topics that deal with social/interpersonal psychology and neurobiology. Multi-paper symposia and special topic issues are organized and presented regularly as well.
The goal of Social Neuroscience is to provide a place to publish empirical articles that intend to further our understanding of the neural mechanisms contributing to the development and maintenance of social behaviors, or to understanding how these mechanisms are disrupted in clinical disorders.
Submissions from all branches of neuroscience are welcome, including (but not limited to) bio/neuropsychology, pharmacology, genetics, neuroendocrinology, evolution, psychiatry, neurology, aging and translational social neuroscience. Experimental investigations of human subjects and animal models are encouraged. Further, submissions are sought that present brain-based empirical data in the fields of social and cognitive psychology, including social cognitive neuroscience, philosophy, lifespan developmental and other humanities areas.
