The doctoral research lines are three:
– Fundamentals of human behavior: the program integrates training in theory of rational action with the discipline of social neuroscience. This line develops the identification of the neurobiological systems involved in the cognitive and emotional mechanisms in which the understanding of the behavior in social contexts is sustained.
– Social Dynamics: examines the articulation of social phenomena from modeling techniques, price theory, game theory, network analysis and simulations, to understand emerging phenomena such as cooperation, stratification and paradigm shifts in knowledge systems.
– Institutions: investigates the rules and institutions that emerge product of the interaction between social beings. Both the reasons behind their emergence in social contexts and the way in which these, once created, condition human behavior and social dynamics.
