Contents:
Conceptual foundations of cultural neuroscience -- Controlled studies of chimpanzee cultural transmission -- Brain in macro experiential context: biocultural co-construction of lifespan neurocognitive development -- Anthropology and cultural neuroscience: creating productive intersections in parallel fields -- Brain in culture and culture in the brain: a review of core issues in neuroanthropology -- Cultural neuroscience of attention and perception -- Cultural constraints on music perception and cognition -- Culture and attention: evidence from brain and behavior -- Cultural neuroscience of cognition -- Culture sculpts the perceptual brain -- Neuropsychological assesment of African children: evidence for a universal brain/behavior omnibus within a coconstructivist paradigm -- Cultural influences on memory -- Numbers in the cultural brain -- Cultural neurolinguistics -- Cultural neuroscience of social cognition -- Culture in the mind's mirror: how anthropology and neuroscience can inform a model of the neural substrate for cultural imitative learning -- Cultural neuroscience of person perception -- Understanding the self: a cultural neuroscience approach -- Cultural effects on the neural basis of theory of mind -- Cultural neuroscience of emotion and well being -- Culture and social support: neural bases and biological impact -- Applications of cultural neuroscience -- Neuroeconomics: in search of the neural representation of brands -- Neuroarchaeology: exploring the links between neural and cultural plasticity -- Cultural neuroscience and psychopathology: prospects for cultural psychiatry -- Cultural neuroscience: a once and future discipline.
In: Progress in brain research no:178Summary: This volume presents recent empirical advances using neuroscience techniques to investigate how culture influences neural processes underlying a wide range of human abilities, from perception and scene processing to memory and social cognition. It also highlights the theoretical and methodological issues with conducting cultural neuroscience research. Section I provides diverse theoretical perspectives on how culture and biology interact are represented. Sections II -VI is to demonstrate how cultural values, beliefs, practices and experience affect neural systems underlying a wide range of human behavior from perception and cognition to emotion, social cognition and decision-making. The final section presents arguments for integrating the study of culture and the human brain by providing an explicit articulation of how the study of culture can inform the study of the brain and vice versa.
