Social effects on craving and health
Social interaction and connection with others are integral features of human life, with important consequences for behaviour, physiology and overall health. However, the brain mechanisms underlying these social context effects on human health remain poorly understood. Funded by the European Research Council, the SOCIALCRAVING project aims to generate a neurobiological signature of the need for social contact or social craving. Researchers will use functional MRI and machine learning to develop a brain-based prediction of the vulnerability to psychosocial risks and negative health outcomes. This approach could help understand the impact of social craving on mental and physical health as well as on decision-making.
