Mental health disorders pose a significant global financial burden in treatment annually. A key challenge facing global mental health is to understand the etiology and treatment of mental health disparities, including the mechanisms of population disparities in mental health. Cultural neuroscience is a research field that examines the cultural, environmental and genetic factors that shape psychological and neural processes underlying behavior. Recent advances in cultural neuroscience demonstrate the relevance of culture in modulating brain and behavior. This talk will provide an overview of advances in cultural neuroscience, with discussion of the implications of this research for closing the gap in population mental health disparities.
