Using the tools of neuroscience and social science, researchers have learned a great deal about the brain's role in human behavior and interactions.
This November, international scientific leaders and young investigators will convene for the first Barcelona Social Brain Conference, an exciting two-day event featuring talks, poster presentations, and a public lecture on the interdisciplinary field of social neuroscience. Through a neuroscientific lens, participants will examine the human qualities of empathy, sacred values, and cooperation, and focus on the ways in which what they learn can be used to understand human conflicts.
Session I: From animosity to empathy: neuroimaging studies on the building blocks of fairness
Session II: Genetic markers for good and bad cooperators. A biological approach to fairness in economic exchanges
Session III: Sacred Values: Anthropological perspectives on fairness in social conflicts
