Seminars in Psychology - The Neuroscience of Social Behavior: From Looking at Faces to Understanding Autism - Oct 2008

Seminar 1 - The Neuroscience of Social Behavior: From Looking at Faces to Understanding Autism - Oct 2008

Ralph Adolphs, Caltech's Bren Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience and professor of biology, discussed how his lab has used brain imaging, direct recordings from the brain in surgical patients, and studies of clinical populations to understand face processing. He explained that specific regions of the brain are required to recognize emotions, that aspects of face perception are fast and automatic, and that people with autism look at faces in unusual ways.
