Neurohumanities Research Group

The Neurohumanities Research Group brings humanists and neuroscientists into sustained dialogue on issues that concern both groups equally but are researched and taught with different discourses, methodologies and technologies. Although the divide between the humanities and the biological sciences is beginning to be crossed, the ultimate form and canon of what neurohumanities might be remains to be determined.

Neurohumanities Research Group capitalizes on Duke’s strengths in humanities and the neurosciences to develop a common language of discourse, generate new research questions, and create new educational initiatives exploring this now approachable frontier. Membership is open to any student, faculty and staff at Duke.
