Brain research is a key area of research to the question of what constitutes the human. With its methods of brain imaging - and thus the apparent ability to "see" into the "living brain at work" - human behavior seems to be explainable and predictable.

Brain research is a key area of research to the question of what constitutes the human. With its methods of brain imaging - and thus the apparent ability to "see" into the "living brain at work" - human behavior seems to be explainable and predictable. This anthology presents from an interdisciplinary perspective differentiated analyses of scientific knowledge production that is concerned with sex/gender and the brain. It gains particular insights into the transformation or persistence of gendered norms that frame current neurocultures.

Gendered Neurocultures offers both reflections for the development of a feminist and queer neuroscientific research as well as perspectives for a gender-sensitive neuropedagogy. The approaches account for the alterability and interdependencies of brains, behaviors, societal experiences, and cultural norms. This collection offers the reader sound knowledge in order to assess brain research's concepts, methodologies, and the value of brain references in popular media and to discuss the implications of current neurocultural discourses within politics on gendered societal order.
