Very cool episode of the Brain Science Podcast. Dr. Ginger Campbell speaks with  Daniel H. Lende and Greg Downey about neuroanthropology in general, and about their 2012 book, The Encultured Brain: An Introduction to Neuroanthropology, in particular.

Neuroanthropolgy: What is it and WHY should You Care? (BSP 97)

May 24, 2013

You may be tired of seeing the prefix "neuro" used to describe every new fad, but The Encultured Brain: An Introduction to Neuroanthropology [2012] edited by Daniel H. Lende and Greg Downey makes an impassioned argument for why neuroscience and anthropology should be working together to unravel the ongoing mystery of how our brains make us who we are. The latest Brain Science Podcast (BSP 97) is a thought-provoking conversation with Downey and Lende. After explaining that anthropology can offer neuroscience field data about "brains in the wild," we explore two case studies that demonstrate the promise of this new partnership.
