Product Description From the Back Cover This comprehensive volume reviews current developments in our evolving knowledge of social attention and its processes. In doing so it examines the brain-behavioral bases of social attention from diverse complementary fields including disordered and healthy adult findings infant and developmental studies and social neuroscience. The studies explored in this volume reflect the ongoing shift toward naturalistic context-based experiments and integrative scientific approaches and away from relying solely on standardized tasks in laboratory settings. In keeping with this proactive perspective the authors pose critical questions throughout the book to point readers toward the potential next wave of research developments and interventions. Included in the coverage: The development of social attention in human infants.Neural bases for social attention in healthy humans.Social attention social presence and the dual function of gaze.Early departures from normative processes of social engagement in infants with Autism Spectrum Disorder.Aberrant social attention and its underlying neural correlates in adults with ASD.The future of social attention research. "The Many Faces of Social Attention" will interest researchers in social neuroscience social psychology developmental psychology social cognition visual attention and cognition and clinical psychology and inspire new advances in this increasingly important area of study. " About the Author Aina Puce is a social/cognitive neuroscientist with a long-standing interest in the neural bases of human face perception and more recently non-verbal communication. Puce was one of the first researchers to study neurophysiological responses to dynamic human faces in the mature human brain. Her studies have used behavior paired with invasive and non-invasive EEG MEG and fMRI to explore how the brain perceives and processes dynamic human faces under different social contexts. Bennett I. Bertenthal is a developmental cognitive neuroscientist with 35 years of experience studying the perception and production of human actions in infants and adults. He was a pioneer in the study of the development of infants perception and discrimination of biological motions and more recently has focused on how infants and adults social attention to face orientation eye gaze pointing and manual actions contributes to their understanding the social goals of others. His research combines eye tracking EEG response times and motion analysis to study action understanding in real and developmental time."
