Developing theories that bridge mind and brain: Some thoughts of a cognitive psychologist
This chapter suggests that the approaches pursued in imaging research can be allocated to one of three categories — exploratory studies, validation studies, and hypothetico-deductive studies. The first two types of studies belong to the ‘forward inference’ domain, the third to the ‘reverse inference’ domain. The chapter also demonstrates how brain-imaging results that relate source recollection and familiarity to distinct parts of the temporal lobe can motivate new behavioural experiments and consequently have an impact on theories of recognition memory.
