James K. Rilling

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the advantages and disadvantages of an approach to social cognitive neuroscience that involves imaging brain function in subjects who are immersed in genuine social interactions. It also discusses what this approach can and cannot reveal about one of the fundamental questions in social neuroscience: whether the human brain has domain-specific neural systems that are specialized for social cognition.
