(p.105) Chapter 5 Cultural differences in neurocognitive processing of others
The Sociocultural Brain

Shihui Han

Oxford University Press

Chapter 5 examines cross-cultural neuroimaging studies of neural processes underlying social interactions. East Asian and Western cultural experiences produce specific cognitive and neural strategies in perception of face and expression, empathy for others’ emotional states, regulation of one’s own emotion, understanding others’ beliefs, perception of others’ social status, and processing of social feedback. The cultural differences in neurocognitive processing of others have been observed in most part of the social brain network, covering both cortical and subcortical structures, and support culturally specific behavior.

Keywords:   Empathy, expression, emotion regulation, face, mental attribution, moral judgment, social comparison
