Social neuroendocrinology is a burgeoning area of research aimed at discovering hormone relationships to social behavior. Studies in this area lie at the intersection of social and personality psychology, neuroscience, cognition, evolutionary psychology, and traditional behavioral endocrinology. The Social Neuroendocrinology preconference has been a popular event at SPSP for several years.

This year’s preconference will feature invited talks from a diverse set of top researchers as well as a short-form Data Blitz session for early-career scholars.
