Imagine a computer screen with a glowing map of every phenomenon studied in neuroscience, linked by constellations of hypothesized causal connections. Clicking on any one of these connections would give access to a summary of the publications reporting the relevant experiments captured by the connection. A map such as this would radically change neuroscience, and the technology exists to build such a map. This chapter introduces a new Integration principle, Mediation Analysis, and discusses how the Framework and all the Integration Analyses, together with key information technologies, could be used to generate large scale interactive maps of research findings.
