Brain Culture. Shaping policy through neuroscience.

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book offers a timely analysis of the impact of rapidly advancing knowledge about the brain, mind and
behaviour on contemporary public policy and practice.
Examining developments in behaviour change policies, neuroscience, architecture and urban design, education, and
workplace training programmes, the book analyses the global spread of research agendas, policy experiments and
everyday practice informed by ‘brain culture’.
It offers an alternative, geographically-informed set of explanations for what matters in explaining how people
behave and how citizens’ behaviour should be governed. It will be of interest to students and academics across the
social and behavioural sciences.
