Just in the last 5 years I have become interested in what I now know is "neuroanthropology". No questions or comments now but very interested inhow the brain works with linguistics and religion.

Hi Tara --

Saw your comment and thought you might be interested to know that there's actually a pretty lively discussion group on neuroanthropology over on Facebook. After the AAA meeting, some colleagues set it up, and it's already over 150 members, and probably gets a few posts a day.

It's at:

Neuroanthropology Interest Group

Sorry to divert away from OAC any attention, as I think it's a great idea, but if you're looking for like minded people, you can find them over at the NIC.

I'm professor of Contemporary Anthropological Theory and Linguistics/Semiotics at the Universidad de Buenos Aires. I've developed some materials on Cognitive Science, Neuroscience and Anthropology of Knowledge I want to share (they are in spanish). They start at

I'm also writing a book on the topic. I've developed research on Artificial Intelligence, complexity and chaos theory. There are lots of material on these ans other issues at my site. Some of my current lines of research are music, brain and culture, and neuroscience and complexity.

It will be great to start a discussion to point out what are the most important contributions to Neuroanthropology and Cognitive Evolution in recent years. My candidates are Aniruddh Patel's Music, Language, and the brain and Cacioppo et al Foundations in social neuroscience.

Waiting for your candidates, ideas and criticism,

Carlos Reynoso
