About the Center

The Dartmouth Center for Social Brain Sciences is a research and training center comprised of scholars from across Dartmouth College who are involved in the study of the social, cognitive, and neuroscientific basis of the social brain.

Understanding the social brain is an inherently multidisciplinary pursuit. SBS researchers come from a variety of backgrounds (social psychology, cognitive and affective neuroscience, developmental psychology, education) and use a wide array of methods and technologies (fMRI, TMS, ERP) to shed light on how the brain supports both our sense of self and our understanding of others.
