The Neural Basis of Political Behavior Workshop
May 3, 2017 @ 8:00 am - May 6, 2017 @ 5:00 pm€ 540 – € 1640
May 3-6, 2017
The emergence of political neuroscience (or “neuropolitics”) -an interdisciplinary venture involving cognitive neuroscience, social psychology, and political science- has piqued the interests of scholars, journalists, and the mass public. In this Workshop, we will cover the structures and functions of the human brain thought to be involved in evaluation, judgment, and behavior that is socially and politically relevant. The Workshop will focus on cognitive aspects of stereotyping, prejudice, and intergroup relations; the occurrence of partisan bias and motivated political cognition; the nature of left-right differences in political orientation (or ideology); and impression formation, candidate perception, voting behavior, and collective action. The Faculty are world-renowned experts in these and related areas of brain research and will cut across multiple areas of this emerging field.
