Social Neuroscience Definition
“Social neuroscience may be broadly defined as the exploration of the neurological underpinnings of the processes traditionally examined by, but not limited to, social psychology.” (Definiton of Social Neuroscience writen by Jean Decety and Julian Paul Keenan in the first issue of Social Neuroscience Journal.)
“Social neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field devoted to understanding how biological systems implement social processes and behavior, and to using biological concepts and methods to inform and refine theories of social processes and behavior.” (Wikipedia)

The lateral prefrontal cortex and moral goal pursuit.
Related ArticlesThe lateral prefrontal cortex and moral goal pursuit. Curr Opin Psychol. 2018 Oct 01;24:77-82 Authors: Carlson RW, Crockett MJ Abstract In the face of competing desires, humans often strive to be fair, honest, and considerate of others. Research from social neuroscience implicates the lateral prefrontal cortex (LPFC) in our capacity to pursue such goals, yet its precise computational role is less clear. Here, we draw on insights from the neuroscience of hierarchical control and value-based choice to offer an integrative look at how LPFC supports the pursuit of moral goals. We conclude by highlighting how future work may leverage these insights to deepen our understanding of the dynamic neural code of morality.PMID: 30342428 […]
Can vendors' age limit control measures increase compliance with the alcohol age limit? An evaluation of measures implemented by three Dutch liquor store chains.

Int J Drug Policy. 2018 Oct 17;61:7-14 Authors: Roodbeen RTJ, Schelleman-Offermans K, Lemmens PHHM Abstract BACKGROUND: Dutch liquor store (off license) chains have voluntarily developed and implemented age limit control measures to increase compliance with the Licensing and Catering Act (LCA), aimed at prohibiting vendors from selling alcohol to minors (<18 years old). This study investigates differences between three liquor store chains in their style of self-regulation and how that affects compliance with the LCA in four domains (capturing processes in age […]

Sleep deprivation selectively enhances interpersonal emotion recognition from dynamic facial expressions at long viewing times: An observational study.
Related ArticlesSleep deprivation selectively enhances interpersonal emotion recognition from dynamic facial expressions at long viewing times: An observational study. Neurosci Lett. 2018 Oct 17;: Authors: Sack B, Broer K, Anders S Abstract Observational and experimental studies have shown that sleep deprivation disinhibits emotional responses to disturbing and rewarding external events. On the other hand, most studies on sleep deprivation and interpersonal emotion recognition report that sensitivity to others' emotions is dampened after sleep deprivation. This is at odds with current neuroscientific theories of social cognition that assume that affective experiences and emotion recognition in others are closely tied at the neural and […]
Neural activity in the social decision-making network of the brown anole during reproductive and agonistic encounters.
Related ArticlesNeural activity in the social decision-making network of the brown anole during reproductive and agonistic encounters. Horm Behav. 2018 Oct 17;: Authors: Kabelik D, Weitekamp CA, Choudhury SC, Hartline JT, Smith AN, Hofmann HA Abstract Animals have evolved flexible strategies that allow them to evaluate and respond to their social environment by integrating the salience of external stimuli with internal physiological cues into adaptive behavioral responses. A highly conserved social decision-making network (SDMN), consisting of interconnected social behavior and mesolimbic reward networks, has been proposed to underlie such adaptive behaviors across all vertebrates, although our understanding of this system in reptiles is very […]
