Each year, the Academy sponsors a Fellowship in Humanities & Neuroscience, and we are proud to have become known as the leading academic institution for the advanced study of this rich interdisciplinary field. (For details about neuroscience events at the Academy, please go to the Humanities & Neuroscience Project page.)
The Humanities & Neuroscience Project at the Italian Academy is dedicated to the understanding of the possibilities offered by the cognitive neuroses, broadly conceived, for the understanding of the arts and letters. The aim of the project is to establish a firm basis for interdisciplinary work in this area. Fellows are given every opportunity to organize joint projects and whatever seminars and conferences may be necessary to further development of the relations between the neurosciences and the humanities. Applications from neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists, and scholars of the humanities with an interest in the neurosciences or neurophilosophy are encouraged, as well as from other relevant fields. More details and deadlines are on the Applications page.
