Social Neuroscience, by John T. Cacioppo and Gary Berntson
By 2005, a handbook of “key readings” [on social neuroscience] had already been published (Cacioppo and Berntson 2005).
The field derives from findings in cross-cultural psychology that show how social cognition and behavior depend on sociocultural context, and it combines neuroimaging, cognitive science, and social psychology to investigate the neural “representation” of social interaction and the neural “substrates” of social processes (Han and Northoff 2008, Zhou and Cacioppo 2010).
