Neurobiological advances appear critical for explicating individual differences in attitudes, values, behaviors, cognition and evaluation, but only recently has the neurobiological tool kit been applied to questions of interest in international relations.

We then explicate the ways that the neurobiological revolution has so far furthered our understanding of these domains.
