By Georg Northoff

Alle reden vom Gehirn. Auch Annalena von Freihausen, in China aufgewachsene Kulturanthropologin, und der deutsche Neurowissenschaftler Felix Trittau tun dies. Und sie stolpern in ihren Gesprächen immer wieder über große Unterschiede in Wahrnehmung und Denken von Menschen verschiedener kultureller Herkunft. Tickt das Gehirn eines Chinesen anders als das eines Amerikaners? Lassen sich kulturelle Unterschiede in Gehirnstrukturen erkennen? Wie nehmen Menschen in verschiedenen Regionen der Welt Emotionen wahr, ihre eigenen ebenso wie die ihrer Mitmenschen? Wie kommt die Welt ins Gehirn - aber vor allem: Wie kommt die Kultur in Kopf?

Fragen wie diese stehen im Mittelpunkt einer spannenden neuen Forschungsrichtung: der kulturellen Neurowissenschaften. Georg Northoff gelingt es in diesem ungewöhnlich Buch, deren Faszination einzufangen und eigene Denkprozesse anzuregen.
