Title: Mechanisms of social perception in mirror-touch synaesthetes and typical adults

Abstract: Our ability to successfully interpret and use social signals is a critical feature of our everyday lives. In this talk I will describe a series of studies that attempt to identify what neurocognitive mechanisms give rise to our social perception abilities; the role of individual differences in social abilities; and whether modulating neural activity in brain regions linked to social perception can enhance the perception of social cues. The talk will include studies in typical adults and individuals with mirror-touch synaesthesia (a rare group of individuals who experience touch or pain when observing touch or pain to others). I will describe behavioural and brain imaging studies in each group, and non-invasive brain stimulation studies in typical adults.
