Neuroscience research relevant to cognitive processes has grown dramatically in the past two decades, largely due to the increasing availability of sophisticated technologies such as those used in neuroimaging. This growth has led to great advances in our understanding of the brain bases of cognitive processes, but in our view this progress is being undermined by a stance which tends to ignore or consider as irrelevant the cognitive level of analysis. This threat comes in two forms. From below… Expand
Formal Approaches in Computational Psychoanalysis and the Embodiment Issue
  • R. L. Grotto
  • Computer Science
  • Int. J. Cogn. Informatics Nat. Intell.
  • 2014
TLDR
Author will present and discuss some formal approaches to the psychoanalytic theory, which could favour a better integration of disembodied and embodied cognition. Expand
Why the earth is almost flat: Imaging and the death of cognitive psychology
TLDR
On page 187 I am charmingly called a flat-earther, presumably because of the sceptical position I have held about the current value of functional imaging to cognitive psychology, as described in papers such as Harley (2004a, 2004b) and Loosemore and Harley (2010). Expand
Fifty Years of Prefrontal Cortex Research: Impact on Assessment
  • P. Burgess, D. Stuss
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society
  • 2017
TLDR
The impact of advances in functional, structural, and theoretical levels of understanding upon neuropsychological assessment practice is reviewed as a means of identifying 11 principles/challenges relating to assessment of executive function. Expand
Parts to principles: Anatomical origins of prefrontal organization
TLDR
The book provides an integrative view of the neurocognitive underpinnings of higher-level cognition, as gleaned from the cognitive neuroscience approach. Expand
Formal approaches in the age of mirror neurons: Hints from computational psychoanalysis
  • R. L. Grotto
  • Computer Science
  • 2014 IEEE 13th International Conference on Cognitive Informatics and Cognitive Computing
  • 2014
TLDR
This work will present some features of the psychoanalytic theories, especially in their more formal contributions, which could favor a better integration of disembodied and embodied cognition. Expand
Case studies continue to illuminate the cognitive neuroscience of memory
TLDR
How single cases continue to uniquely and critically contribute to cognitive neuroscience theory is described and it is demonstrated that single cases can both challenge accepted dogma and generate hypotheses and theories that steer the field in new directions. Expand
Anatomical Modularity of Verbal Working Memory? Functional Anatomical Evidence from a Famous Patient with Short-Term Memory Deficits
TLDR
The functional anatomical patterns of JB, a historical patient, a patient with a left temporo-parietal lesion and selective short phonological store deficit, are described, showing that a certain degree of functional independence or modularity exists in this distributed anatomical-cognitive system. Expand
Cognition blindness and cognitive gadgets
  • C. Heyes
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Behavioral and Brain Sciences
  • 2019
Abstract Responding to commentaries from psychologists, neuroscientists, philosophers, and anthropologists, I clarify a central purpose of Cognitive Gadgets – to overcome “cognition blindness” inExpand
Cognitive neuropsychology and its vicissitudes: The fate of Caramazza's axioms
  • T. Shallice
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Cognitive neuropsychology
  • 2015
TLDR
It is argued that at least six types of neuropsychological method are valuable for extrapolation to theories of the normal cognitive system but that the single- or multiple-case study remains a critical part of cognitive neuropsychology's methods. Expand
Consciousness and Neuroscience
TLDR
A theory of conscious access should incorporate five essential concepts: a supervisory system, a serial processing, a coherent structure of recurrent neural loops, a global neuronal workspace capable to differentiate and integrate the various contents of experience, and a complex system of topological properties which identifies crucial hub nodes.

Cognitive Neuropsychology twenty years on
Cognitive neuropsychology began in the second half of the nineteenth century when neurologists such as Lichtheim, Wernicke, Bastian, and others began to make inferences about the cognitiveExpand
Structure and deterioration of semantic memory: a neuropsychological and computational investigation.
TLDR
The authors present a parallel distributed processing implementation of this theory, in which semantic representations emerge from mechanisms that acquire the mappings between visual representations of objects and their verbal descriptions, to understand the structure of impaired performance in patients with selective and progressive impairments of conceptual knowledge.

On the Methods of Cognitive Neuropsychology
  • C. Glymour

Contemporary cognitive neuropsychology attempts to infer unobserved features of normal human cognition, or ‘cognitive architecture’, from experiments with normals and with brain-damaged subjects inExpand
The cognitive neuroscience of remote episodic, semantic and spatial memory
TLDR
A unified account based on multiple trace theory is proposed, which states that the hippocampus is needed for re-experiencing detailed episodic and spatial memories no matter how old they are, and that it contributes to the formation and assimilation of semantic memories and schematic spatial maps. Expand
Hierarchical cognitive control deficits following damage to the human frontal lobe
TLDR
Results provide direct evidence for a rostro-caudal hierarchical organization of the frontal lobes and two adjacent regions were distinguished on the basis of the level of control, consistent with previous functional magnetic resonance imaging results. Expand
Anatomy of deductive reasoning
  • V. Goel
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Trends in Cognitive Sciences
  • 2007
TLDR
The literature on the neural basis of deductive reasoning from the past decade is reviewed and several interesting patterns are identified and articulate their implications for cognitive theories of reasoning. Expand
On Broca, brain, and binding: a new framework
  • P. Hagoort
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Trends in Cognitive Sciences
  • 2005
TLDR
A new framework that connects psycholinguistic models to a neurobiological account of language is proposed and it is suggested that the left inferior frontal gyrus (LIFG) plays an important role in unification. Expand
Conscious, preconscious, and subliminal processing: a testable taxonomy
TLDR
A taxonomy is proposed that distinguishes between vigilance and access to conscious report, as well as between subliminal, preconscious and conscious processing, and that conscious perception is systematically associated with surges of parieto-frontal activity causing top-down amplification. Expand
Interdependence of Nonoverlapping Cortical Systems in Dual Cognitive Tasks
