Abstract and Keywords

The meaningful consideration of cultural practices, values, and beliefs is recognized as a significant factor for the effective translation of innovation in neuroscience to clinical practice. Given increasing attention to the cultural diversity of society and the immense investment in the biomedical sciences, it is essential to study how potential discoveries in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer disease, are perceived and utilized across cultures. Key questions about culture interact with issues surrounding the acceptance of disease-related cognitive decline and personality changes, possibilities for predicting disease, and methods of intervention. The unique circumstances described in this chapter highlight the complexities of cultural considerations in research and the significance of cultural neuroscience as an emerging field.

Keywords: Neurogenetics, First Nation community, Alzheimer disease, culture, diversity
