The mission of the Center is to create a rich intellectual environment and a supportive academic environment to turn these challenges into opportunities.
The launch of the Center was marked by a conference in 2004 entitled Social Neuroscience: People Thinking About Thinking People, the product of which appeared as a book by the same title (Cacioppo, Visser, & Pickett, 2006, MIT Press).
Among the facilities of the Center are laboratories, computer servers and resources, and staff to support the research of faculty members, and among the events sponsored by the Center are an annual colloquium series, meetings here and abroad, faculty and student exchange programs, tutorials on fMRI, and a variety of training sessions and workshops for faculty and students.
