Event description
This seminar will spotlight novel research designs that examine interdependent individuals embedded within complex relational systems.

About this Event

Experimental interventions are becoming an increasingly popular research methodology in the neural and social sciences. Conventionally, animal and human intervention studies try to reduce the variability and complexity of the environment as much as possible. These studies focus on independent individuals, randomly assigning each one to either an experimental condition (intervention) or control condition, and look for changes to the brain and behavior. This seminar is not about conventional intervention research. Instead, we spotlight novel research designs that examine interdependent individuals embedded within complex relational systems, from the interactions of couples, to middle-school friendships, to parent-child dynamics.
