About Us


Emory's Center for Mind, Brain, and Culture (CMBC) explores issues and phenomena associated with mind, brain, and culture from an interdisciplinary perspective.

The Center rests on the assumption that multiple explanatory perspectives are essential for explaining the cognitive and social abilities of humans and other species. The aim is for inter-disciplinary exchange to inform faculty and student research, contribute to undergraduate and graduate curricula, and lead to a wide variety of inter-disciplinary research projects that establish multi-perspective explanations.

Since its founding in 2007, the CMBC has provided a home for interdisciplinary engagement at the intersection of mind, brain, and culture through multiple means including:

Currently located in the Psychology and Interdisciplinary Sciences Building (PAIS), the CMBC is funded primarily by a grant from Emory College for the express purposes of founding the Center and assuring its continuation.
