1st Edition of the SISSA International Summer School in Social Cognitive Neuroscience

SCoNe (July 15-28, 2013) is set up for advanced PhD students and junior post-docs and will take place in SISSA (International School of Advanced Studies), located in Trieste, Italy, a beautiful town by the Adriatic Sea.

Social Cognitive Neuroscience is an emerging field with an interdisciplinary vision on human behavior in social contexts. This year’s topics will be:

- NEUROSCIENCE of SOCIAL INFORMATION PROCESSING (i.e., social judgment, empathy, stereotyping, prejudice, face perception and emotion), and

- NEUROSCIENCE of REWARD (i.e., neurobehavioral mechanisms of appetitive motivation and reward, value-based decision making, and the reward value of social interaction).

All accommodation, eating, and travel costs for all accepted students to the summer school will be covered by the organizers. Accepted students will be asked to pay only a registration fee (400 Euro).

The DEADLINE for applying is: April 19th, 2013
