Mechanisms of social behavior: implications for human health (September 2015)

Symposium in Social and Biological Determinants of Health

Organizer: Kyle Summers, East Carolina University. This symposium will bring together scientists working on the mechanisms underlying social behavior at multiple levels (genetic, physiological, cognitive and behavioral) in a variety of vertebrate species, including frogs, mice, non-human primates and humans. Presentations will focus on the relevance of these mechanisms to an enhanced understanding of health and disease, both in humans and non-human animals. In addition to the presentations, there will be ample opportunity for interactions and discussion between the presenters and attendees, including a poster session.
