About this event

We know that social networks are critical for human wellbeing, and in this talk Sophie Scott wants to examine why this might be. Sophie will argue that exploring the social roles of human vocal communication may form an important part of understanding the benefits of social networks. Sophie will outline what we know about the neurobiology of these systems, and explore what we know and what we don't yet know in terms of how these systems develop.
