Abstract [en]

Converging evidence suggests that humans have a behavioral repertoire that assists the immune system in the defense against infectious disease. Behavioral detection of subtle and early sickness cues in others, and subsequent avoidance of the infected conspecific, would indeed be a cost-efficient way of coping with an environment fraught with pathogens. That humans can detect early and subtle cues of sickness by way of both olfaction and vision was recently demonstrated. The current study targeted how sickness cues affect social perception 95and how these visual and olfactory cues, alone and in unison, activate the brain.
