Aspects of biology that underlie social behavior
Hormones
Oxytocin usually called the love hormone
Brainwaves
Many different ways of measuring brainwaves
EEG-measures small fluctuations of electricity in the brain non invasively
Functional MRI measures blood level changes
DNA
Study behaviorally
Molecular genetics
Physical
Differences in physical maturation can influence social interactions
Some of these biological mechanisms explain why people experience things that
affect how they act for the rest of their lives
How robotic our we?
Can we transcend who we are to become better?
Biological foundations of social interaction
Lays does the idea that babies are equipped with how to interact with people
Basic brain development and functions and specific dev’t which affect behavior
How are babies prepared?
Biological rhythms (sleep-wake cycle), many biological systems operate like this,
cortisol levels are like this too (cyclic)
These biological rhythms can enhance our development, enhancing social rhythms
There is a claim that the acquisition of biological skills affect how/when we
Babies need to develop biological rhythms (fixing sleep patterns, etc)
Idea that those who develop normally will develop a healthy development of
social skills
Premature babies don’t develop circadian rhythms as well as normal babies
Idea that oxytocin wipes away previous memories and focuses on forming a new
relationship with the other person
Visual preparation for social interaction
Babies attracted to faces and look more and more at the eyes

Document Summary

Eeg-measures small fluctuations of electricity in the brain non invasively. Differences in physical maturation can influence social interactions. Some of these biological mechanisms explain why people experience things that affect how they act for the rest of their lives. Lays does the idea that babies are equipped with how to interact with people. Basic brain development and functions and specific dev"t which affect behavior. Biological rhythms (sleep-wake cycle), many biological systems operate like this, cortisol levels are like this too (cyclic) These biological rhythms can enhance our development, enhancing social rhythms. There is a claim that the acquisition of biological skills affect how/when we. Babies need to develop biological rhythms (fixing sleep patterns, etc) social skills. Premature babies don"t develop circadian rhythms as well as normal babies. Idea that oxytocin wipes away previous memories and focuses on forming a new relationship with the other person. Babies attracted to faces and look more and more at the eyes.
