Wellcome Trust School on Biology of Social Cognition


14-21 August 2011


Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK


The workshop reviews the genetic, molecular, and neural factors that contribute to social behaviour, details emerging analytical approaches to these topics, and discusses theoretical advances that have helped make sense of the data.

The program will emphasise human social cognition, but will also feature comparative and evolutionary approaches. All themes will be related to the clinical consequences of dysfunctional social cognition as well as the role of translational research in these topics.
