2nd Summer Institute in Cultural Neuroscience – July 2011

8 02 2011

The Center for Culture, Mind and the Brain, CCMB at the University of Michigan, will be hosting its second Summer Institute for Cultural Neuroscience (SICN) from July 18-20, 2011. The event is organized by Shinobu Kitayama, Director of the CCMB and Carolyn Yoon, Associate Professor at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan.

The SICN has a great line up of leading researchers on this field such as Shinobu Kitayama, Joan Chiao, Daphna Oyserman, Denise Park and Adreas Roepstorff.

The topics that will be covered at this year’s SICN include evolution, culture and mind; gene-culture coevolution; culture, cognition and the brain; neuroeconomics; race, prejudice and decision processes; and cultural neuroscience methods.

Applications for the Summer Institute are due March 15, 2011.

Shiui Han’s absence this year is regrettable: He is one of the founding fathers of the field and was one of last year’s speakers who was present throughout the entire time of the summer school and regularly attendended student group discussions.
