Within the Cultural Brain research group, we investigate how cultural inventions – such as written words, numbers, music, and belief systems – shape our mind and brain.
Our research is divided into three themes (the Literate Brain, the Predictive Brain, and the Mutimodal Brain), each of which provides us with a unique window for exploring the culturally-shaped mind.
We use behavioural measures, functional and structural neuroimaging techniques, and computational modelling to help us answer the central question: To what extent does culture determine what it means to think as a human?
At the Cultural Brain research group, we also have a dedicated website where you can find out more about our research themes and recent news.
Our research projects generally fall into one of three themes:
