Web Site of the Week: Neuroanthropology

As this site from anthropologists Daniel Lende and Greg Downey explains, “Neuroanthropology places the brain and nervous system at the center of discussions about human nature, recognizing that much of what makes us distinctive inheres in the size, specialization, and dynamic openness of the human nervous system.” Recent posts on this informative blog have included musings on youth and violent extremism, an exegesis of cultural relativism, and an overview of common brain mechanisms in mental illness. Downey and Lende are often funny, always intelligent, and profoundly well-informed. For anyone interested in the intersection between culture and the brain, this site is a must read. [CNH]
