Identity

The Center for Mind and Culture is a non-partisan research institute focusing on phenomena at the intersection of mind, brain, culture, and society. We combine:

  • the sciences of minds, brains, and bodies (e.g. neuroscience, cognitive psychology, evolutionary biology, medicine),
  • the sciences of culture, society, and history (e.g. sociology, anthropology, political economy, history),
  • the computational sciences (e.g. modeling and simulation, semantic network analysis, machine learning, analysis of massive datasets), and
  • the humanities, whenever they are relevant to deepening understanding of the phenomena being studied.
