Tania Singer (sündinud 8. detsembril 1969 Münchenis) on saksa neuroteadlane ja psühholoog, neurofüsioloog Wolf Singeri tütar.

Ta on aastast 2010 Leipzigi Tunnetus- ja Neuroteaduste Max Plancki Instituudi direktor.

Uurimistöö[muuda | muuda lähteteksti]

Ta uurib inimese sotsiaalse käitumise aluseks olevaid neuronaalseid ja hormonaalseid mehhanisme[1], täpsemalt sotsiaalse tunnetuse ja sotsiaalsete emotsioonide (näiteks empaatia, kaastunne ja õiglustunne) aluseid ning sotsiaalset otsustamist ja kommunikatsiooni, samuti koostöö ja altruistliku käitumise aluseid ning nende lakkamist teatud tingimustes. Tema lähenemine eeldab neuroteaduste, psühholoogia, biopsühholoogia, bioloogia, majandusteaduse, filosoofia ja antropoloogia interdistsiplinaarset koostööd.

Ajakirjas Science ilmus 2004 artikkel, milles Tania Singer esimesena näitas, et ajupiirkonnad, mis on aluseks inimese enda valutöötlemisele, aktiveeruvad ka siis, kui katsealused näevad oma partneri valu.[2] Kaks tema uurimust näitavad, et empaatiaga seotud ajupiirkondade aktiveerumist mõjutab see, kas katsealune peab teist inimest oma rühma kuuluvaks ja kas ta peab teda õiglaselt käituvaks.[3]
