The Neural Basis of Real-World Social Interaction

The Human Mind Project and Being Human The Neural Basis of Real-World Social Interaction Dr Suzanne Dikker (Utrecht University, Dept. of Language and Communication; New York University, Dept. of Psychology) Most of us interact with other people on a daily basis. Yet, we know very little about how the brain supports dynamic social interactions. In this talk, Suzanne Dikker will discuss a series of projects in which she collaborated with scientists, artists, and educators to investigate the brain basis of real-world face-to-face communication. Dr Dikker will present a number of multidisciplinary projects and discuss promising new avenues for investigating social interactions outside of the laboratory.

Creativity and the Mind - Margaret Boden

The Human Mind Project and Being Human Creativity and the Mind Opening remarks Mattia Gallotti (The Human Mind Project) Margaret Boden (University of Sussex) Creativity means innovation and positive change, the inventing of new worlds out of sparks of genius. A creative mind is a mind that generates ideas and solutions likely to make a breakthrough at the societal level. Creative activity evokes chaos and order, allowing us to establish new paths and patterns. What is the creative mind? Is creativity a feature of our attitude towards things, attentive, and open? How does the psychical, social and cultural environment enable creative activity, and how can the environment be structured to enhance it? Is creative agency, and intelligence, a prerogative of the individual? Get inspired by leading experts at this one day Being Human festival event with The Human Mind Project and Guerilla Science. Hear from creative practitioners and scholars and flex your own creative muscles through a se...

Agency, Morals & the Mind - Emma Flynn

School of Advanced Study Agency, Morals & the Mind Morals, Culture and Society How does the Behaviour of Others Influence What We Do? Emma Flynn | Professor of Developmental and Comparative Psychology, Durham University How do we become members of our cultural group? How, and why, do we learn the traditions of the society within which we live? In my talk I present research which examines how young children learn from other individuals in their social group. I present a series of diffusion experiments that investigates how ‘cultural norms’ are established, transmitted and altered. My results show that 6 children are excellent imitators, copying with high fidelity tool use behaviour that they witness others perform, even copying actions which appear to be functionally irrelevant; that is they ‘overimitate’. Such overimitation allows traditions that may be causally opaque (often the case within cultural traditions) to be sustained within groups. However, equally my work demonstrate...

Agency, Morals & the Mind - Catherine Wilson

School of Advanced Study Agency, Morals & the Mind Morals, Culture and Society Responsibility as a Social Construction Catherine Wilson | Anniversary Professor of Philosophy, University of York From an empirical perspective, it is important for an animal to distinguish between its own doings, the kinds of actions over which it exerts control, and things that 'just happen' to it. However, the distinction is not precise, and the animal is, after all, just a complicated mechanism in which and to which things happen. When we move into the realm of human agency, the distinction between doings and happenings becomes extremely vague, yet at the same time hugely important because of the ways in which we punish people for what we regard as deliberate offenses, including moral offenses and criminal actions. Metaphysicans have tried but have not succeeded in defining freewill and responsibility for us, let alone in showing that they are more than conceptual fictions linked to subjective feelin...
