Neurocircuitry of Social  Behavior Keystone Symposia, Sept. 4-7 2022


From aggression, to empathy, pair bonding and nurturing parental behavior, social behaviors are diverse and complex. This conference on the Neurocircuitry of Social Behavior in South Korea, September 4-7, will cover new technological and scientific advances that are enabling scientists to understand how we process, integrate and respond to social cues, in the context of normal behavior, and in the context of disorders like schizophrenia and autism.

The conference will bring together neurobiologists with social scientists, to address key questions in social neuroscience from a neural circuitry perspective, providing insight into novel treatments for disorders where social behaviors are dysregulated. Delve into these fascinating topics with world experts!

Program Highlights:

  • Social Recognition and Memory
  • Social Communication
  • Social Motivation & Decision Making
  • Social Bonding, Parental Behaviors & Sexually Dimorphic Behaviors
  • Social Hierarchy, Dominance & Aggression
  • Empathy & Prosocial Behavior
  • Social Stress & Anxiety
