Topics researched in cultural neuroscience

01/01/2003 (Aprox)01/01/2015 (Aprox)


One could object that individualism/collectivism and self-representation are particularly problematic subjects or that we confined ourselves to investigations that explicitly claim to be about “neural basis” (for a synthesis, see Zhu and Han 2008). After all, research has been carried out on topics such as perceptual processing (Kitayama et al. 2003), attentional modulation (Hedden et al. 2008), language (Tan et al. 2005; Lei, Akama, and Murphy 2014), music (Nan et al. 2008), number representation and mental calculation (Tang et al. 2006), emotional processes (Chiao et al. 2008), mental attribution (Tang et al. 2006), and self-representation and self-awareness (Han and Northoff 2008) [...]


[...] other topics, such as the default mode network; regulation and inhibition of feelings, thoughts, and actions; prejudice and dehumanization; and fundamental warmth and competence judgments (Ames and Fiske 2010), have been identified as up-and-coming research areas. Moreover, important integrative effort has been made concerning the neuroscience of intergroup and intercultural relations (Cikara and Van Bavel 2014, Warnick and Landis 2015).
