Cultural Click to listen to this podcast on "The Neuroscience of Culture." From the Web site of Neuroscene:

For many years, social scientists have attempted to explain human cultural differences by studying behavioral or attitudinal traits. But recent advances in neuroimaging techniques are now allowing researchers to look directly into the brain and to identify these differences at a cellular level.

In this podcast, we are delighted to feature Dr. Nalini Ambady of Tufts University, one of the leading scientists in the emerging field of cultural neuroscience. Be sure to join us in this fascinating podcast as we discuss what exactly defines culture from a neuroscience perspective, and what areas of the brain might be responsible for our respective cultural norms and identities.
