Seminar organized by Jean Decety, 2021-2022 Paris IAS Fellow, as part of his "Social Neuroscience" series
Humans are embedded in social networks, and these networks obey very particular biological, psychological, sociological and mathematical rules and principles. Social networks affect every aspect of people lives. Understanding the neural and mental architecture of how we represent and navigate social relationships shed light on how we shape and are shaped by social ties.
With the participation of Andreea Vintila (social psychologist) – Université Paris Nanterre.
