Everything a human being creates is generated in the brain. Neuroscientific knowledge is not restricted to research in laboratories or to the practice of clinical neurology in medical centres. Expressions like art or scientific thinking, ethic and social behaviour, are due to biological functions of the brain in response to particular environments.
Current knowledge about how the brain works makes it impossible for humanistic disciplines such as philosophy, sociology and psychology to ignore the fact that it is the brain that organizes thoughts and emotions. Neuroscience joins humanistic and scientific disciplines to create new areas of study such as neuroart, neuroethics, neuroeducation, neuroeconomics, etc.
Understanding the functioning of the brain can bring together art and science and give us important clues about the human condition and the way we organize our societies. This is the basis of Neuroculture. In this section you will find information about how the brain works in different areas of knowledge and artistic expression.
