|Title:||Technologies of the mind: neuroanthropology and memetics|
|Citation:||NeuroQuantology, 2009; 7(2):318-324|
|Abstract:||This paper deals with aspects of neuroanthropology which may assist in the study of memetics. The neurobiological dimensions of the brain give rise to cultural evolution. Myth and ritual play an important part in human cultures due to their cognitive imperative which is concerned with existential mastery and ontological security. The role of memes may play a crucial part in this process which necessitates more scholarly exploration.|
