This chapter examines neural mechanisms underlying dynamic face perception and also discusses several neural challenges, including the development of the methods for studying the neural mechanisms of perception and action during social exchanges. It emphasizes that it is important to take into account interactive contexts while studying the neurophysiological basis of perception and production of facial expressions. The existing methods for understanding sensory processing in the brain are being challenged by social neuroscience, which is demanding an extension of behavioral, physiological, and conceptual tools in order to examine and explain the relationship between behaviors, sensations, and patterns of neural activity.

Keywords:   facial perception, social exchanges, facial expressions, social neuroscience, neural activity
