The human brain is the most complex living structure known, tasked with producing our mental and behavioral existence. Whether investigating an isolated gene or a larger societal trend, social neuroscience takes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the brain and considers how biological systems affect our social processes and behavior. In this lecture, John Cacioppo describes how social neuroscience contributes to our knowledge of the brain and how that knowledge might instruct our responses to contemporary social issues.
