Conference Mission

In light of the growing interest in studying culture and diverse populations and how these factors mutually interact with our psychology and biology, we are organizing a small virtual meeting this Fall to continue to develop the field of Cultural Neuroscience in partnership with the International Cultural Neuroscience Society (ICNS). Talks at the meeting touch on two guiding themes: Health and Wellbeing and Lifespan Development. We will have prerecorded talks from researchers in cultural neuroscience and related fields as well as lightning talks, digital posters and an online discussion forum.
