Center of Excellence proposal for 2014–2019:

Complex Social Dynamics COSDYN

The inherently social nature of humans and technologies they develop has throughout history shaped the well-being of individuals and their sociality. To study these phenomena we propose a CoE as an interdisciplinary research effort aiming at a multi-level integrative view to the complex dynamics of human social interaction, from the neural basis of shared understanding to collective human behaviour in large-scale social networks including those based on modern communication devices and Internet. To reach this aim, we combine in a unique way world-class expertise in cognitive sciences, neuroscience, brain imaging, psychology, sociology, and complexity sciences
