The single authoritative source on social cognition and decision-making

Decision-making is an integral part of our daily lives. Researchers seek a complete understanding of the decision-making process, including its biological and social basis and the impact of our decisions. From DNA to Social Cognition fills a gap in the literature that brings together the methods, perspectives, and knowledge of the geneticists, neuroscientists, economists, and psychologists that are integral to this field of research.

Drawing upon their unique expertise, the editors have compiled the first resource on the topic with a strong emphasis on genetics and that comprehensively relates neurogenetics, social cognition, neuroeconomics, and psychopathology. They provide introductory material to establish links between sections and chapters. The contributions highlight the ever-increasing complexity of social cognition and decision-making; as such, a variety of important topics are covered, including: DNA and neural correlates of emotion; studies at the cellular level in relation to reward learning and prediction error; imaging studies aimed at elucidating brain areas involved in decision-making and social interactions; pharmacology; applications to understanding psychopathologies such as compulsive gambling, addictions, eating disorders, and autism; and game theory approaches to understanding decision-making and social behavior.

From DNA to Social Cognition is a valuable resource for research scientists, graduate students, and post-docs in the fields of genetics, psychology, neurosciences, economics, psychiatry, and psychopharmacology.
