Principles, processes, and puzzles of social cognition: An introduction for the special issue on social cognitive neuroscience

Abstract: This article introduces the special issue of NeuroImage focused on social cognitive neuroscience. Social psychology has a rich history of making sense of the often paradoxical aspects of social cognition and the social world. This article reviews the principles, processes, and puzzles of social cognition and behavior that have been examined by social psychologists for decades. Five principles of social cognition and behavior are reviewed including: (1) the power of the situation over behavior, (2) blindness fo… Show more

“…Expectation-related neural activity consistent with increased afferent sensitivity has been observed in somatosensory cortex, anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), anterior insula (aINS), thalamus, and spinal dorsal horn (Hsieh et al, 1999;Porro et al, 2002;Porro et al, 2004;Lieberman, 2005). Inhibition of limbic brain activity during anticipation of pain has often been reported in experimental studies where healthy participants are asked to tolerate maximal pain but know they will not sustain serious damage and can terminate pain at will.…”

“…These results have identified brain regions selective for inferences about social versus physical phenomena (Mitchell, 2006) and have demonstrated that reasoning about mental states is distinct from mere reasoning about people (Saxe & Kanwisher, 2003). While this approach certainly supports the broad idea that social-cognitive processes are in some sense domain-specific, it has not yet delivered on the promise (Decety & Cacioppo, 2011;Lieberman, 2005) of illuminating the precise mechanisms by which these processes work. This is partly because any given brain area is typically associated with several distinct experimental tasks (Anderson, Kinnison, & Pessoa, 2013), and any given experimental task typically activates several brain areas (Schurz, Radua, Aichhorn, Richlan, & Perner, 2014).…”

“…The so-called "cognitive revolution" of the post-war period has seen the rise of cognitive anthropology, cognitive archaeology, cognitive economics, cognitive linguistics, cognitive sociology and even the cognitive science of religion, all vibrant fields of endeavor. Furthermore, there is a wealth of literature going under the label of social cognition that is concerned with several other mammalian species (for some recent surveys on SC from a life sciences perspective see Adolphs (2001), Lieberman (2005) and Saxe (2006)). Some clarification of the term social cognition is thus in order.…”
