Summer Institute in Cultural Neuroscience
July 14, 2014 @ 8:00 am - July 25, 2014 @ 5:00 pm
We invite you to apply to attend the fourth Summer Institute in Cultural Neuroscience at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. SICN is an annual two-week program that provides graduate students as well as faculty with an overview of core topics and recent research developments related to cultural neuroscience in order to prepare them to start their own empirical investigations. Attendees will have an opportunity to develop their own research ideas in cultural neuroscience through interactions with peers and faculty members.
SICN lectures on culture, brain, or both will be delivered by world-renowned scholars. Each scholar will discuss his or her work and place it in a broader scholarly context. Lectures will be followed by small group discussions.
The topics to be covered include:
- Cultural psychology
- Culture, self, and brain
- Culture, cognition, and brain
- Neuroeconomics and culture
- Decision Neuroscience and culture
- Co-evolution of culture and genes
- Stereotyping, racial bias, and brain processes
- New approaches to culture and personality
