What are the neural processes involved in perceiving out-groups? The pace of inquiry into this topic has picked up considerably since the pioneering neuroimaging studies conducted in 2000, yielding several insights into the neural processes involved in perceiving, responding to, and regulating responses to out-groups. Chapter 6–8 elegantly synthesize the social neuroscience work on perceiving out-groups and suggest several areas for further inquiry. This chapter first summarizes the insights provided by these chapters and then goes on to outlining areas for further inquiry.

Keywords:   social neuroscience, out-groups, neural processing, responding, neuroimaging
