The aim of the Social Mind Center is to promote interdisciplinary research that investigates the link between sociality and cognition. The research activities at the center aim at a new understanding of how the human mind enables and constrains social life including coordination and the transmission of ideas and practices, and how human minds are shaped by cultural practices.

The Social Mind Center consists of three research groups:
