TRACE is the acronym for "Transmission in Rhetorics, Arts and Cultural Evolution".

TRACE is the name of a neuroanthropological research group based in Wuppertal, Germany. The research focus is on cultural evolution. Transmission means the transfer of cultural information units and their storage in biological memory systems.

TRACE develops cultural evolution theories and tests these theories through neuroscientific experiments. Its actual field of operation is neuroscientific memory research.
