"The Social Cognitive Basis of Political Rhetorics"

Political rhetoric, Aristotle told us, is what orators use to persuade their audience about future. Numerous studies in social psychology/neuroscience have asked what happens in the mind and brain of the audience. There is hardly any research about the mind and brain of the orator who employs rhetorical devices to persuade. I will address this question in my talk.
