202311.04 How Does the Fear of Infection Make Us More Community-Minded? (Poster Presentation) Posted in RESEARCH

It is well-established that shifts in risk perception due to the proliferation of infections can steer a society toward a more collectivist culture. While this shift has been explored at the individual level through behavioral studies, the neurological underpinnings have not been as thoroughly investigated. In our study, we utilized functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to examine the specific brain activities associated with changing perceptions of infection risk. We showcased our findings in a poster at "The 5th Coregulating Social Brain Group(CSBG)" in Hakone-Yumoto, Japan. The poster session concluded with an engaging discussion among attendees, which unfolded over a shared buffet and a relaxing visit to the hot springs. This fusion of scientific exchange and Japanese hospitality culminated in an enriching experience that was uniquely possible in Japan.(CHOI)
