I will teach a graduate course in Neuroanthropology in the fall. I plan to use our forthcoming edited volume, The Encultured Brain: An Introduction to Neuroanthropology, from MIT Press as one of the core books for the class (it will be out in September, and ready for shipping to university bookstores in August). But I am also looking for other recommendations people might have for books for this class.
I started the morning particularly interested in finding a good book that covers the brain and neuroscience, so any recommendations on that side are definitely welcome. But I am just as open to recommendations of all sorts – critical neuroscience, ethnographies, implications of neuroscience, and whatever you think might be useful.
I know there are other people out there planning their own neuroanthropology courses, so your recommendations could be useful for all sorts of different courses. And I am already planning an undergraduate version of neuroanthropology for the following year, so the more recommendations the better!
