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.
