982 Summer 2020 Toward a Model of Interpersonal Trust
Tuesday, 9:40–11:05, July 21
Instructor: Frank Krueger

Trust pervades nearly every social aspect of our daily lives, and its disruption is a significant factor in mental illness. Recent research has gained a deeper understanding of the neuropsychological underpinnings of trust by combining complementary methodologies from neuroscience, psychology, and economics. However, still lacking is a coherent model of trust that integrates separate findings under a conceptual framework. The instructor will sketch out an integrative model that explains how the interactions of neuropsychological components engage domain-general large-scale brain networks in shaping trust behavior over time. He will also point out caveats of current research approaches and identify open questions that can help guide future transdisciplinary investigations.
Frank Krueger is a professor at George Mason University. As a psychologist, physicist, and neuroscientist he investigates the psychological functions and the neurobiological mechanisms of social cognition (e.g., beliefs) and social interaction (e.g., trust) by combining methods from social psychology, behavioral economics, and social neuroscience.
