The Social Neuroergonomics section of Frontiers in Neuroergonomics publishes high-quality fundamental, translational, and applied research across the field of social neuroscience related to human factors and ergonomics —an emerging sub-field that explores on how people process, store, and apply social information about human-machine systems on a continuum from automation to autonomy. Understanding the neuropsychological underpinnings of human social cognition and interactions toward automation (e.g., machines, hardware devices) and autonomy (e.g., social robots, AI) –utilizing methodologies from neuroimaging, neurostimulation, neuroendocrinology, neuropharmacology, and neurogenetics— help to develop more efficient automated and autonomous systems for naturalistic and everyday settings.
Areas covered by this section include, but are not limited to:
Trust in automation
Social communication with autonomy
Social interaction with autonomy
Social facilitation in the context of virtual and robotic agents
Biases and stereotypes toward autonomy
Social perception of automated systems
Social decision-making and autonomous systems
Human-autonomy long-term bonding
Hyperscanning and multi-brain approaches
Intra- and interpersonal brain and social behavior synchrony
Neuroethics and social brain rights
All open-access publications must contribute empirical, design, or theoretical insights into the human neural mechanisms of the underlying affective, cognitive, or motivational processes applied to social cognition and interaction toward autonomy and automation. Aspects relating to the neural signatures of cognitive processes (e.g., executive functions, working memory) in relation to behavioral performance during human-machine interactions do not fall within the scope of this section and should be submitted to our sister section, Cognitive Neuroergonomics.
