Welcome to the Emory Center for Mind, Brain, and Culture (CMBC).
The Center's mission is to foster inquiry, research, and teaching from multiple explanatory perspectives concerning issues and phenomena associated with mind, brain, and culture and their relations. Such interdisciplinary exchange will
(1) inform faculty and student research,
(2) contribute to curricula, and
(3) lead to a wide variety of research projects that develop, explore, compare, and, when possible, integrate explanations from multiple analytical levels.
These initiatives will help to forge a larger community of scholars concerned with mind, brain, and culture at Emory and to highlight and promote the important inquiry on these topics that already occurs at Emory.
The Center sponsors multidisciplinary graduate and undergraduate courses and an associated colloquium series. The Center also offers a popular but space-limited lunch series associated with a blog that allows speakers, attendees, and others to discuss particular issues concerning mind, brain, and culture. CMBC-hosted summer workshops and informational sessions provide techniques and tools that will be of use to a broad array of scholars from a variety of disciplines.
Emory faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate and undergraduate students whose interests coincide with the Center’s mission are encouraged to become affiliates and to participate in the Center’s activities.
