The missing link: Leadership, identity and the social brain

    Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


    How the cohesion of a social network is being maintained in spite of having different layers of social interaction is an important question. I argue that the evolution of both (political) hierarchy and social identity play a crucial role in scaling up and bonding social networks. Together they are missing links in the social brain hypothesis, and further research is needed to understand the functions of leadership and social identity. © 2011 The British Psychological Society.
