On the evolutionary roots of human social cognition


From neuroanatomy to functional neuroimaging studies, I will present research studies suggesting strong phylogenic origins to human social cognition. Firstly, our comparative anatomy studies showed the existence of a conserved architecture supporting social cognition since the last common ancestor to human and old-world monkeys. Secondly, we tested the functional properties of the primate social brain. More specifically we focused on the evolutionary origins of the human mindreading abilities, also called theory of mind (TOM).
