It is an exciting challenge for us to launch a new interdisciplinary journal, Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology. We believe the journal will appeal to a wide audience across several scientific specialties. In recent decades, considerable technical and theoretical advances have shed new light on psychological and neural processes. For example, in the area of neuroimaging techniques, it is now possible to explore the role of the brain in a wide variety of behaviours and paradigms (motor, perceptive, or cognitive). In the context of these new techniques, two important fields within cognitive neuroscience and psychology have started to emerge: (1) affective neurosciences that aim to explore the role of the brain in emotional and motivational information processing (Pankseep, 2003), and (2) social neurosciences that focus primarily on the role of the brain in social information processing (Insel & Fernald, 2004).(Published: 10 March 2011)Citation: Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology 2011, 1: 6420 - DOI: 10.3402/snp.v1i0.6420
