Social neuroscience

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Viktorija Radotic

Social neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field devoted to understanding how biological systems implement social processes and behavior, and to using biological concepts and methods to inform and refine theories of social processes and behavior.

Still a young field of study, social neuroscience is closely related to affective neuroscience and cognitive neuroscience, focusing on how the brain mediates social interactions.

This module looks at how we behave and function in social groups and how social neuroscience works.

We will explore

  • What is the social brain?
  • The concept and principles of social neuroscience
  • Understanding the diversity of different brains
  • Understanding how our social brain evolved
  • Looking at what controls our behaviour

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
