Neuroanthropology on Brain Science Podcast

Brain Science PodcastGinger Campbell, who runs the great Brain Science Podcast project, was kind enough to feature Greg and myself for her 97th episode. We discussed The Encultured Brain with Ginger for over an hour, and now the podcast is up:

Neuroanthropology: What Is It and Why Should You Care?

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.

Thanks so much, Ginger, for having us on our show. We really enjoyed it.
