Congrats to Remi Janet on his new paper on social dominance learning!

Exciting new paper on the role of serotonin availability in our ability to learn about social ranks. Lower serotonin levels in a critical brain region (dorsal raphe nucleus) were better for learning about social hierarchies (social dominance). This link was specific for social learning contexts, as shown in a non-social control task. Learning about one’s status in a group is fundamental to building social hierarchies. Congrats to Remi’s new insights into the neurobiological basis of this critical human ability! You can find the full paper here:
