Social Influence

We are interested in how social interaction alters judgment and memory. We have found that social influence changes the neuronal representation of memory to a surprising extent (joint work with Yadin Dudai and Micah Edelson at the Weizmann Institute of Science). Specifically, long-lasting, socially-induced memory alterations are predicted by a unique brain signature of enhanced amygdala activity and amygdala-hippocampus connectivity (Edelson et al., 2011). Our current work expands this line of research.
