Logging In to the Brain’s Social Network
Does the pain we feel from rejection and loss have the same effect as physical pain? How does our brain respond to social interactions? In his new book Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect, social neuroscientist Matthew Lieberman describes the biology behind how our brains engage with the social world.
Matthew Lieberman is the author of Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect (Crown, 2013); director of the Social Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory; and psychology professor at the University of California, Los Angeles in Los Angeles, California.
