The social hotspot is of interest
to anyone who studies neuropsychological aspects
of human behavior in a social context.

LIBC-social member Lisa Schreuder and her LIBC-social colleagues have published an interesting empirical paper on the neural correlated of prosocial decisions.

In their article entitled “Friend versus Foe: Neural Correlates of Prosocial Decisions for Liked and Disliked Peers” they studied prosocial decision-making towards real-life friends and disliked peers in young adults. They showed that individual differences in prosociality levels towards friends modulate activity in the supplementary motor area and anterior insula during interactions with friends compared with disliked peers. These results suggest that individuals evaluate their behavior based on norms when interacting with friends, and that not acting according to this social norm could induce internal conflict.
