What can Neuroimaging do for Psychology?Adina Roskies (Dartmouth College)

Abstract: The colorful brain maps produced by neuroimaging have captured the popular imagination with the promise of yielding up the secrets of the mind. Some critics claim that the attention is misplaced: neuroimages cannot tell us anything of interest about our psychology. The lay public seems to believe, in contrast, that it will reveal almost anything, perhaps much more than we ought to be comfortable with. In this talk I will argue that both kinds of worries are misplaced, and will explore the epistemological constraints and limits of neuroimaging as well as its promise for understanding the mind.
