The Neurohumanities Research Group (NRG) brings humanists and neuroscientists into sustained dialogue on issues that concern both groups equally but are researched and taught with different discourses, methodologies, and technologies. Although the divide between the humanities and the biological sciences is beginning to be crossed, the ultimate form and canon of what neurohumanities might be remains to be determined. We believe that Duke can be an international leader in this enterprise and powerfully shape the definition and scope of this new transdiscipline. The NRG capitalizes on Duke’s strengths in humanities, including the Franklin Humanities Institute, and the neurosciences, including the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences, to develop a common language of discourse, generate new research questions, and create new educational initiatives exploring this now-approachable frontier.

The Neurohumanities Research Group's theme for the 2012-13 academic year is Neurodiversity and the Humanities.
