This chapter focuses on research that examines the underlying process and consequences of social categorization. It reviews social neuroscience research specifically using event-related brain potentials (ERPs) to understand issues related to social categorization. Three main issues are discussed: the degree to which attention to social category information is automatic, whether such attention is malleable, and how attentional differences in response to social category information relate to behavior.

Keywords: social categorization; event-related brain potentials; neuroscience research; social category information
