Social neuroscience refers to the study of the brain, mind, and behavior in social contexts. The area of intergroup relations provides a particularly rich domain for examining the interplay of neural and social psychological processes at multiple levels of analysis, from the intrapsychic to the group and society. For this reason, social neuroscience research on intergroup relations has already contributed important advances to our understanding of the social brain, and this area continues to thrive as one of the most active areas in the field. In this chapter, we describe neuroscience models of control and their implications for theories of self-regulation in the domain in intergroup relations.

Keywords: social neuroscience; control mechanisms; intergroup relation; self-regulation; response regulation
