演講摘要:In this talk, I consider that the brain integrates physical and social valuative signals from external stimuli in order to form veridical representations of the environment. Using this notion, I suggest that culture-specific experiences about the social congruence of an individual’s interaction with the visual environment shape visual representations. In this manner, cultural biases in perception, attention, and interpretation of scenes, faces, and other visual stimuli arise as seen in studies comparing Westerners and East Asians. Such integration of culture-specific social valuative signals likely relies on reinforcement learning that involves the dopaminergic reward system. I then describe specific conditions and operations that delineate how cultural influences might modulate visual cognition in terms of social, cognitive, and neurobiological mechanisms. Further, I suggest how our framework might be important for applications in normative contexts of social interaction as well as clinical settings that involve culture-specific diagnosis and treatment approaches. With the increasingly interconnected world, individuals will experience higher frequencies of culture-related interactions with the physical and social environment. Thus, understanding how culture influences a cognitive ability as fundamental as visual processing is central to addressing higher level societal and health issues that have different manifestations and effects in individuals from different cultures.
