Neuroscience and Autism Science: The Social Brain

The 2024 lecture series in neuroscience and autism science is “The Social Brain.” Social interactions dominate our world and experiences. Human society itself results from large-scale social behavior. Such behaviors are also ubiquitous in other animals, from cooperation in nonhuman primates to the courtship rituals of flies. In these lectures, scientists will discuss how these social behaviors likely arise through neurobiological mechanisms shared across species.
