Special Issues on Cultural Neuroscience
Like other neurodisciplines, those that concern culture passed in a few years from being an informal group of scholars with common interests to having their own name and Wikipedia article, professional institutions, journals, societies, colloquia, educational events, blogs and websites, programs, and graduate students. Special issues of journals not specifically devoted to them highlight synergies between those new disciplines and more established fields.
Thus, cultural neuroscience has been the subject of special issues of Psychological Inquiry (2013), Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (2010), the Asian Journal of Social Psychology (2010), and Progress in Brain Research (2009). The Handbook of Social Neuroscience offers an overview (Chiao 2011), and the collective volume Cultural and Neural Frames of Cognition and Communication (Han and Pöppel 2011) includes several contributions from the discipline.
