Technical advances in the neuroelectric recordings and in the computational tools for the analysis of the brain activity and connectivity make it now possible to follow and to quantify, in real time, the interactive brain activity in a group of subjects engaged in social interactions. The degree of interaction between persons can then be assessed by "reading" their neuroelectric activities. Imaging the social brain can thus open a new area of study in neuroscience.
