The concept of mentality in actual research is revealed. The importance of the category of analytic-holistic thinking is emphasized (including its manifestations at the inter- and intracultural level). The articles are analyzed, which describe the brain support of behavior in mental variations, including those related to various types of activity and forms of social interaction. The results are interpreted from the standpoint of a systemic evolutionary approach. The evolutionary aspect of the existence of intra- and intercultural variations is discussed.
