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.

  1. Glad I found you! This looks like a great place for me to start my own journey into social neuroscience and the role of neuromodulators in decision-making (in all organisms).

    • Great! I’m actually doing this with only one foot in the neuromodulator world (studying non-social effects, actually; I’m a learning and memory guy right now). But the best way to continue learning about it seemed to be this…sort of a personal journal club 😉
