Changing social processing with non-invasive brain stimulation

Recently there has been considerable interest in using non-invasive brain stimulation to aid performance in typical and atypical groups. One example is the field of social processing, where non-invasive brain stimulation has been suggested to support the perception of one’s own affective states (e.g. mood) and those others (e.g.emotion perception). In this seminar we will explore and discuss the implications of evidence related to this claim.
