This chapter reviews previous psychological findings of cross-cultural variations in social cognition and recent brain imaging findings of cross-cultural variations in the neural substrates underlying social cognition. This literature review outlines what aspects of social cognition vary across cultures and to what degree the underlying neural mechanisms are shaped by sociocultural contexts. This chapter explores the implications of transcultural imaging findings formental health and raise future questions regarding the cultural diversity of socialcognitive processes and their underlying neural mechanisms.
