Abstract and Keywords

The chapters in this scholarly collection represent the foundations of the conceptual and empirical approaches in cultural neuroscience and the potential for this field to address outstanding questions in population health disparities. Closing the gap in population health disparities represents an important opportunity and challenge for scholars and public policy makers. To provide equity in access and quality of health care irrespective of culture, race and ethnicity across geography, it is important to understand both 1) the etiology underlying population disparities in mental health and 2) the factors that contribute to access and quality of health care and treatment. Cultural neuroscience is a field that contributes to both endeavors.

Keywords: cultural neuroscience, global mental health, population health disparities
