The Cultural Brain

With Professor Joan Chiao, Department of Psychology - Northwestern University

Can culture change the basic anatomy of the brain? When individualist and group-oriented societies across the globe are compared, it might be culture, not just genes, that drives evolutionary outcomes. Please join Prof. Chiao as she explores the evolution of humanity operating on at least two
different levels of the brain. One is the well understood biological level, but there is also a level where traits are selected for their particularly unique cultural success which leads to the selection of different types of genes. In other words, is culture not just something interesting to do on the holidays but actually has an affect on how we think and even how we perceive reality?

TIME: 6:15?7:45 pm

FREE - no cover charge!
