Communication and Social Cognition Division

Communication and Social Cognition Division logo

The Communication and Social Cognition Division is dedicated to the study of the social cognitive aspects of message production, reception, and processing. Because the role of social cognition in communication crosses traditional contextual boundaries, the context of study (e.g., face-to-face, mediated, communibiological, etc.) is secondary. Relevant topics might include, but are not limited to, cognition, emotion, social influence, social perception, listening, information processing, affective processes, message effects, brain function, and personality and individual differences in communication. In particular, we are interested in research with a focus on the role of social cognition within any aspect of human communication (e.g., interpersonal, intrapersonal, language and social interaction, instructional, health, group, organizational, intercultural, political, mass communication).
