Social Neuroscience

James V. Haxby

Oxford University Press

The representation of others is a central problem that brings social neuroscience and cognitive neuroscience together. Chapters 1–4 present an overview of the current state of our understanding for the neural systems that participate in the representation of others and highlight the major themes and issues that characterize this area of investigation. This chapter addresses why this particular problem is of great interest to both social and cognitive neuroscientists.
