Social neuroscience is a field of research that spans social psychology, neuroscience, and physiology. It is specifically interested in looking at how the brain mediates social interactions. The field is currently emerging and is closely related to Cognitive neuroscience and Affective neuroscience.

Social neuroscience uses numerous methods to investigate antecedents of social behavior, including fMRI, Event-related potentials, Electrocardiogram, and examination of the Electrodermal Response.
