Reward and emotions are central to almost every aspect of human social life. In recent years, research on their underlying mechanisms has gained tremendous interest, especially in settings of social interaction.

The goal of this Research Topic is to examine the neurobiological and psychological mechanisms underlying reward and emotions in different social settings, shedding light on new paradigms, approaches and data from basic research, as well as clinical and intervention studies in neuroscience, biology, social medicine, philosophy and psychology. The aim of this Research Topic to highlight new interdisciplinary research on reward and emotions during social interactions. Topics may include:

• Neural basis of reward and social behavior as well as hormonal modulators of social behavior
• The central role of emotions in social settings
• Social interaction behavior (e.g. parent-child interaction, couple interaction) as risk or resilience factors
• The role of biological systems in social interactions
• Effects of early social interaction experiences on infant and child development
• Innovative methods for investigating reward and emotions and their neurobiological underpinnings

We welcome manuscripts with a conceptual or methodological focus and papers reporting original data.


Keywords: Social interaction, reward, social cognition, social impairment, mental health, psychopathology, social neuroscience, psychoneuroendocrinology, psychoneuro-immunology
