Brain and Society

DIBS investigators are transcending the boundaries between neuroscience, the social sciences, and the humanities to provide novel insights into the neural basis for behaviors that are particularly relevant to human interactions. DIBS investigators from the School of Medicine, Arts and Sciences, and the Fuqua School of Business are combining their expertise in genetics, behavior, cognition, economics, and neuroscience to illuminate the neural basis of decision-making, communication, social cognition, social behavior, and affective processes in humans and animal models.
