Doheny and Lighthall publish paper on social cognitive neuroscience in the digital age

In their new publication in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, AD&D Lab Ph.D. student, Maggie Doheny and Dr. Lighthall describe new challenges and perspectives in cognitive neuroscience, with a focus on social cognitive neuroscience in the digital age.

The paper reviews our current understanding of the social-cognitive neural network and summarizes critical differences between the neural correlates of social cognition in remote vs. face-to-face interactions. The review also recommends future directions for research on social-cognitive neuroscience in our digital technology-connected world and presents a neural model for social cognition in the context of remote interpersonal communication.
