“Coupling between the anterior cingulate cortex and the amygdala in primate social cognition”

How do we interact with others? Social interactions are characterized by a dynamic and contingent series of behaviors between at least two individuals. Experiments involving real-life interactions aimed at better simulating natural social behaviors may help elucidate the mechanisms underlying social cognition. In this talk, I will first discuss our recent finding on oscillatory coordination between the anterior cingulate cortex and amygdala that is associated with other-regarding (compared to self-regarding) preference toward a conspecific. Further, I will discuss how focal manipulations of the neuropeptide oxytocin influences this inter-regional coupling for other-regarding preference. Finally, I will discuss the neural basis of interactive gaze dynamics between pairs of macaques from the perspectives of local coding and inter-regional coordination.
