Abstract

© The Editor(s) and The Author(s) 2018. Since the 1990s, several disciplines have emerged at the interface between neuroscience and the sciences of cultures. Their goal is to understand both how the brain produces culture and how culture is inscribed in the brain. In this chapter we offer an overview of neuroanthropology and cultural neuroscience, the two main “neurodisciplines of culture.” We compare them to each other, relate them to the associated endeavors of cultural psychology and social neuroscience and explore the ways in which they may, and may not, be relevant for an understanding of culture.
