This volume presents selected issues in neuroscience which can be helpful to social scientists interested in this new and exciting field. At the same time it summarizes ways that social processes enter into, and impact on, brain processes and therefore may be of interest to neuroscientists as well. The potential for cross-fertilization in the two fields clearly is enormous.
