Suparna Choudhury is currently investigating the development of naturalized conceptions of adolescence through cognitive neuroscience as part of the Cerebral Subject project, which traces the historical development, topography and functioning of ‘brainhood’ in contemporary culture (http://www.brainhood.net). This follows from her postdoctoral research on cultural constructions of the brain at the Division of Social and Transcultural Psychiatry, McGill University and her PhD in Neuroscience on social cognitive development during adolescence at University College London. She is also developing an interdisciplinary project on Critical Neuroscience, which aims to open up new experimental and interpretive possibilities by connecting social and historical studies of neuroscience to experimental neuroscience, itself (http://www.critical-neuroscience.org).
