Joan Chiao and Shinobu Kitayama Announce International Cultural Neuroscience Consortium

We are pleased to announce the development of the international cultural neuroscience consortium (ICNC).   The goal of the ICNC is to build an interdisciplinary, international research network in cultural neuroscience.

In the next few years, we look forward to developing working groups, offer travel grants for speakers and students at conferences as well as an online
website to connect researchers from interdisciplinary communities and facilitate collaborations in cultural neuroscience to study population health disparities and public policy in global context.

We are grateful for your support to develop the ICNC as well as your continued involvement in the ICNC activities.  To further this initiative, we look forward to your responses to an online survey that will help us
create research and teaching connections and an active database scholars and policymakers across diverse communities and cultures.

Please feel free to distribute widely to your students, friends and colleagues and we look forward to receiving your suggestions by early November!
