The SC has been suggested to be involved in social interaction.

Multisensory integration is used in social signal processing.

According to the hypothesis expressed by Johnson, amygdala, pulvinar, and SC together form a sub-cortical pathway which detects faces, initiates orienting movements towards faces, and activates cortical regions.

This implies that this pathway may be important for the development of the `social brain', as Johnson puts it.
