    Efficient recognition of facial expressions does not require motor simulation

    Gilles Vannuscorps et al.
    It is possible to account for efficient facial expression recognition without having to invoke a mechanism of motor simulation, even in very sensitive and challenging tasks.

    Normal cognitive and social development require posterior cerebellar activity

    Aleksandra Badura et al.
    Social and cognitive functions require normal activity during development of the posterior cerebellum.

    Cognitive regulation alters social and dietary choice by changing attribute representations in domain-general and domain-specific brain circuits

    Anita Tusche, Cendri A Hutcherson
    Regulatory success operates by goal-consistent increases and decreases of distinct attribute representations in generic neural hubs and in domain-specific brain regions, explaining when and why regulatory success generalizes across domains and contexts.

    Songbirds can learn flexible contextual control over syllable sequencing

    Lena Veit et al.
    Songbirds can use arbitrary visual cues to immediately, flexibly and adaptively control syntax of learned song vocalizations in a manner that parallels human cognitive control over syllable sequencing in speech.

    The causal role of the somatosensory cortex in prosocial behaviour

    Selene Gallo et al.
    A combination of human imaging and brain stimulation techniques show that the somatosensory cortex is essential to prosocial decision making, by transforming observed pain in accurate perception of others' distress.

    Shape-invariant encoding of dynamic primate facial expressions in human perception

    Nick Taubert et al.
    Contrasting with neural network theories, a study of the cross-species perception of dynamic faces with highly realistic human and monkey avatars reveals independent perceptual encoding of facial shape and expression.

    The role of oxytocin in delay of gratification and flexibility in non-social decision making

    Georgia Eleni Kapetaniou et al.
    Oxytocin was found to significantly improve non-social decision making in a healthy sample, suggesting a domain-general function of the hormone, in contrast to its previously hypothesized social domain specificity.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Insights into the evolution of social systems and species from baboon studies

    Julia Fischer et al.
    Wild baboons are an excellent model to study complex evolutionary processes such as speciation and hybridization, as well as the links between sociality, longevity and reproductive success.

    Vicarious reward unblocks associative learning about novel cues in male rats

    Sander van Gurp et al.
    Rats learn to interpret cues predicting rewards delivered to social partners as valuable, but only if social information exchange is possible.

    Brain functional networks associated with social bonding in monogamous voles

    M Fernanda López-Gutiérrez et al.
    Brain functional connectivity shows a neurobiological predisposition to social bonding, and network-wide changes occur as a result of cohabitation in the prairie vole.
