If culture is indeed create

If culture is indeed created by the brain, and there are distinct cultures that people conform to, there must be a similarity in the peoples' brains (or rather, architecture) that allow his conformity to one culture.  There is definitely a genetic and environmental component in this conformation to one culture, and I always wonder the significance on the brain's architecture of being born and therefore inducted automatically into a culture and changing to become part of a culture (rather it be through marriage, converting religion, etc).  I wonder how the brain changes in these different situations.
