Brain Imaging

What it Can (and Cannot) Tell Us About Consciousness

Robert G. Shulman

  • Neuroimaging cannot tell us how neurons are supporting psychological mental processes.
  • The powerful empirical insights obtained by imaging methods are overshadowed by claims that they can identify abstract mental processes.
  • Overreaching claims about identifying abstract mental processes have persisted despite empirical failings.
  • a clarification of the experimental philosophical distinctions in imaging has become necessary.
