2nd Meeting on "Perspectives and Future Directions in Social Neuroscience – Social Interaction from Rodents to Humans"

April 21st – April 22nd, 2016 at the Center of Brain, Behavior and Metabolism (CBBM) at Lübeck University, Germany


Social neuroscience is an expanding research field devoted to understand how social behavior is implemented by biological factors, and how social experiences in turn impact the brain. A major goal of 2nd meeting on ‘Perspectives in Social Neuroscience – Social Interaction from Rodents to Humans’ is to integrate research findings about the neural basis of social behavior across different levels of analysis from rodent studies to functional neuroimaging in humans. This workshop thereby aims to bridge the fields of social psychology, social neuroscience in rodents and humans, and clinical neuroscience to provide an integrated approach to the understanding of social behavior.

We encourage PhD students and senior scholars with a strong interest in social neuroscience to send submissions for the poster session on Friday the 21st. The abstract deadline is the 5th of March 2017. There is no registration fee for participants and child care service will be provided. Abstract (2,000 total character limit) and a short academic CV (max 1. page) should be send to info[at]perspectives-in-social-neuroscience.com in pdf-format.
