An introduction

In systems neuroscience, the sensory systems are by far the most overstudied part of the nervous system.  Vision, anybody?  But there is a system that should have more time spent on it is the social system.  From humans on down to bacteria, organismal interactions are as vital to our existence as our senses of sight and touch.  This blog will focus on social decision-making from a neural perspective, meaning you can expect a lot of neuroscience (decision-making), social psychology, economics, and ecology.

Note: This post will be updated as I refine my aims and goals for this blog.
