Environment, Culture, and the Brain: New Explorations in Neurohistory

Neuroscience offers historians ideas, methods, and questions that can help us understand the past in new and deeper ways than the traditional methods of history alone provide. This issue of RCC Perspectives collects a number of contributions to the growing field of neurohistory. They ask questions about the role of biology and the brain in the development of human culture, a problem which is of relevance for environmental history as a whole because it can help shed light on how people interact with their surroundings.
