The requirements for neuroinformatics to make a significant impact on the field of neuroscience as a whole are not simply technical - the hardware, software, and protocols for collaborative research - they also include the legal and policy frameworks within which research is conducted. This is not least because the creation of large collaborative scientific databases amplifies the complicated interactions between proprietary, for-profit R&D and public "open science". We draw on experiences from the field of bioinformatics to examine some of the likely consequences of these interactions in neuroscience. The widespread sharing of data and tools for neuroscientific research is a key step in the development of neuroinformatics. We consider some of the areas in which policy frameworks can facilitate these forms of collaboration, by easing legal and cultural barriers which have slowed developments to date.
Research in robotics has made available numerous possibilities and tools for further innovation in the psychological practice. For instance, recent research provided many examples of possible applications of robots in the education and rehabilitation of people with learning difficulties and/or intellectual disabilities. In this paper, we present a study on how cultural backgrounds can influence the perception and intention to use a robot as an instrument in the future practice. The study involved 37 Italian students and 37 UK students, as future professionals in the field of psychology, which experienced the actual capabilities of a humanoid robot through a live demo. In this work, we explored the main factors of the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) with the aim to reveal cultural differences. The instrument used was the UTAUT questionnaire, which was designed and validated to investigate the robot acceptance and use. A significant difference on the intention to use the robot is reported in our results. The discriminant analysis produced a very high degree of separation between the two groups, confirming that there is a different approach toward the use of robotics between the two cultures.
In high-quality Japanese services, providers are often said to sense what their customers want from subtle cues and deliver a customized service without explicitly advertising the effort. To understand this subtle service, often called "Omonpakari," we studied a high-end Sushi restaurant using multidisciplinary approach--using neuroscience to analyze the cognitive characteristic, ethno methodology to analyze the interactive structure, and computer science to analyze the social evaluations. The study based on neuroscience showed that the service brain model could explain the cognition of "Omonpakari" service regardless of customers' gender, knowledge and the social context. The ethno methodological analysis revealed that customers performed a role, complying with cultural norms and behaving like a culturally appropriate customer even if they might not be. The analysis using computer science techniques showed that expertise was the key factor of evaluation of the services. These findings suggest an alternative model of service in which there is a productive tension, or dialectic, between the provider and the customer.
The neuroscience-related challenges facing civilian and military communities are significant. From nervous system trauma to neurodegenerative diseases, the burden of neurological problems is large. Engineering and computation are poised to make major contributions to understanding nervous system dynamics in health and disease, as well as offer innovative solutions to pressing neurological problems. This presentation will address these challenges, offer a view over the research and development horizon of emergent technologies, and address cultural issues involved with cross-cutting research.
Storytelling is a foundational activity in every human culture, and the stories humans tell emanate from and result in each culture's unique history and mythology. Storytelling can also be an effective business tool for the creation of workplace culture. In the hands of capable leaders, storytelling can build strong culture, resulting in high employee engagement, which leads to high performance organizations. In this paper, we establish that there are three fundamental types of internal business communications, which address the questions of “what do we do,” “how do we do it,” and “why do we do it.” We next establish that storytelling is well-suited to motivate and inspire employees. We briefly summarize the five different types of stories, and establish that, while several types of stories are routinely told in the business environment, mythologies are well suited to motivate and inspire employees by answering the deeper, more meaningful questions around why our business exists. Next, we present an integrated view of storytelling from three perspectives: Jungian Depth Psychology, Mythology, and Neuroscience. We establish that Jungian Depth Psychology describes all humans as having common, universal mysteries to explain, and that they use common symbols to represent their understanding of these mysteries. Mythological stories and culture then emerge as a result of these common mysteries, coupled with unique group history and environment. We next establish that emerging neuroscience shows that storytelling is powerfully received in the human brain, and engages our brains more profoundly than other methods of communication. Finally we present a simple framework for leaders to use storytelling within their organizations. This framework includes practical thought models to use when driving cultural change or amplification via storytelling.
The Baldwin effect has been explicitly used by Pinker and Bloom as an explanation of the origins of language and the evolution of a language acquisition device. This article presents new simulations of an artificial life model for the evolution of compositional languages. It specifically addresses the role of cultural variation and of learning costs in the Baldwin effect for the evolution of language. Results show that when a high cost is associated with language learning, agents gradually assimilate in their genome some explicit features (e.g., lexical properties) of the specific language they are exposed to. When the structure of the language is allowed to vary through cultural transmission, Baldwinian processes cause, instead, the assimilation of a predisposition to learn, rather than any structural properties associated with a specific language. The analysis of the mechanisms underlying such a predisposition in terms of categorical perception supports Deacon's hypothesis regarding the Baldwinian inheritance of general underlying cognitive capabilities that serve language acquisition. This is in opposition to the thesis that argues for assimilation of structural properties needed for the specification of a full-blown language acquisition device.
The digital museum of university is conducive to the preservation and utilization of precious cultural assets. This thesis describes the framework of a digital museum platform of university based on DSpace, including data models, metadata, searching and browsing, user interface, as well as the secondary development of DSpace platform and localization work. The platform, put into application in Beijing Normal University Digital Museum, has achieved good results, featuring an easy expansion, stable operation, convenient retrieval and flexible display.
People living in multicultural environments often encounter situations which require them to acquire different cultural schemas and to switch between these cultural schemas depending on their immediate sociocultural context. Prior behavioral studies show that priming cultural schemas reliably impacts mental processes and behavior underlying self-concept. However, less well understood is whether or not cultural priming affects neurobiological mechanisms underlying the self. Here we examined whether priming cultural values of individualism and collectivism in bicultural individuals affects neural activity in cortical midline structures underlying self-relevant processes using functional magnetic resonance imaging. Biculturals primed with individualistic values showed increased activation within medial prefrontal cortex (MPFC) and posterior cingulate cortex (PCC) during general relative to contextual self-judgments, whereas biculturals primed with collectivistic values showed increased response within MPFC and PCC during contextual relative to general self-judgments. Moreover, degree of cultural priming was positively correlated with degree of MPFC and PCC activity during culturally congruent self-judgments. These findings illustrate the dynamic influence of culture on neural representations underlying the self and, more broadly, suggest a neurobiological basis by which people acculturate to novel environments.
The ability to infer others' thoughts, intentions, and feelings is regarded as uniquely human. Over the last few decades, this remarkable ability has captivated the attention of philosophers, primatologists, clinical and developmental psychologists, anthropologists, social psychologists, and cognitive neuroscientists. Most would agree that the capacity to reason about others' mental states is innately prepared, essential for successful human social interaction. Whether this ability is culturally tuned, however, remains entirely uncharted on both the behavioral and neural levels. Here we provide the first behavioral and neural evidence for an intracultural advantage (better performance for same- vs. other-culture) in mental state decoding in a sample of native Japanese and white American participants. We examined the neural correlates of this intracultural advantage using fMRI, revealing greater bilateral posterior superior temporal sulci recruitment during same- versus other-culture mental state decoding in both cultural groups. These findings offer preliminary support for cultural consistency in the neurological architecture subserving high-level mental state reasoning, as well as its differential recruitment based on cultural group membership.
In their commentary on our work, Ravignani and Verhoef (2018) raise concerns about two methodological aspects of our experimental paradigm (the signaling game): (1) the use of melodic signals of fixed length and duration, and (2) the fact that signals are endowed with meaning. They argue that music is hardly a semantic system and that our methodological choices may limit the capacity of our paradigm to shed light on the emergence and evolution of a number of putative musical universals. We reply that musical systems are semantic systems and that the aim of our research is not to study musical universals as such, but to compare more closely the kinds of principles that organize meaning and structure in linguistic and musical systems.
