Third International Social Neuroscience Course (3CINS-2019)

The Science and Human Processes Interdisciplinary Laboratory – LINCIPH, and the Health, Medical Knowledge, and Society Area of the Social and Human Sciences Faculty invite the Externadista community to enroll in this course.

In recent decades, Neuroscience has developed substantially and has become a reference horizon for many disciplines and fields of knowledge. In this scenario, Social Neuroscience is an inter-discipline integrating life sciences and social and human sciences theories and methods, from evolutionary, molecular, and informational perspectives contributing to the understanding of the social brain.

The above is being constructed from theoretical-methodological platforms addressing problems such as the spread of social emotions, social cognition, prosocial behaviors, intentional attribution between individuals, and the processes associated to collective activities, among others. The possible synchronous and co-determined activity between different active brains in a social process is still an assumption, not an empirical finding.

However, perhaps the most fundamental Social Neuroscience contribution could refer to the possibility of rethinking the debate on the continuity or discontinuity of the mental processes involved in collective actions, and the interaction scope as radical styling of the psychological apparatus and its material substrates.

The course structure and content seek to introduce fundamental discussions and trends in Social Neuroscience research as an interdisciplinary field contributing to the study of social dynamics and human processes. To achieve this objective, the course features guest lecturers from universities in Italy, Mexico, Cuba, and Colombia. Additionally, the course will incorporate key virtual pedagogical practices and laboratory work to contribute to achieving significant learning, allowing participants to integrate them into their professional, research, and teaching roles.
