Overview

This book examines the biological, especially the neural, substrates of affiliation and related social behaviors. Affiliation refers to social behaviors that bring individuals closer together. Until recently, researchers have paid little attention to the regulatory physiology and neural processes that subserve affiliative behaviors. The integrative approach in this book reflects the constructive interactions between those who study behavior in the context of natural history and evolution and those who study the nervous system. The book contains the partial proceedings of a conference of the same title held in Washington, DC, in 1996. The full proceedings was published as an annal of the New York Academy of Sciences.
