UCL Lunch Hour Lecture

The Social Brain. Dr Sarah-Jayne Blakemore (UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience)


The brain has evolved to understand and interact with other people. We are increasingly learning more about the neurophysiological basis of social cognition and what is known as the social brain. In this talk I will focus on how the social brain develops during adolescence. Adolescence is a time characterised by change - hormonally, physically, psychologically and socially. Yet until recently this period of life was neglected by cognitive neuroscience. In the past decade, research has shown that the social brain develops both structurally and functionally during adolescence. This lecture marks Brain Awareness Week 2010.
