Neurocognitive Research Program for the Advancement of the Humanities (NRPAH)

Our mission is to employ the most advanced scientific research methods and findings in order to maximize the development of personally and socially crucial neurocognitive capabilities through engagement with the humanities.

This mission, unique among the more than 100 humanities centers and institutes across the nation, addresses the longstanding but increasingly urgent need for systematic empirical investigation of the neurocognitive developments fostered by the humanities.  The purpose of this research is to enable the establishment of more effective, evidence-based practices in humanities education and outreach and to produce empirical evidence that will demonstrate the value of the humanities to the public and thereby enhance their support for the humanities.
