Humans are intensely social beings that have evolved and developed within highly social environments in which each individual is dependent upon others. We constantly engage in social perception, using cues from facial expressions, gaze shifts, and body movements, to infer the intentions of others and plan our own actions accordingly. Kevin Pelphrey investigates the properties of specialized brain systems that are important for social perception using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), eye tracking, and molecular genetics in typically developing adults and children, as well as in children and adults with autism.
