Brain, Mind, and Social Factors

The field of studies

Neuroscientists study the nervous system at different levels of the organization beginning with molecular and finishing with the study of consciousness, creativity and social behaviour. Recently, there has been an upsurge of interest from many allied disciplines: philosophy, economics and political science. New disciplines appeared such as neuroehthics, neuroeconomics, neurotheology, neuromarketing, neuropolitical science, neurosocilology and neuroaesthetics. The St.Petersburg Centre for Interdisciplinary Neuroscience deals with the sociology of neuroscience and the methodology of the interdiscilinary approach based on neuroscience towards social, political, economic, aesthetic, ethic issues within the above mentioned new scientific disciplines.
