    The new phrenology: the limits of localizing cognitive processes in the brain By G. Rees Topics: Book ReviewAuthor: G. Rees. The localization approach in neuroimaging is an attempt to find where a cognitive function is located in a specific area of the brain, which seems to be similar to an old effort, called phrenology.

      is fatal to the interpretation of brain images as representing well-defined cognitive processes. One such critic is William Uttal, a psychologist at Arizona State University. In his book The New Phrenology: The Limits of Localizing Cognitive Processes in the Brain. William Uttal is concerned that in an effort to prove itself a hard science, psychology may have thrown away one of its most important methodological tools-a critical analysis of the fundamental assumptions that underlie day-to-day empirical research. In this book Uttal addresses the question of localization: whether psychological processes can be defined and isolated in a way that permits.

The Limits of Localizing Cognitive Processes in the Brain By William R. Uttal. Uttal's new bookThe New Phrenology is an iconoclastic attack on even the possibility of the localization of cognitive function in the brain.

Uttal wasd Professor Emeritus (Engineering) at Arizona State University, Professor Emeritus (Psychology) at the University of Michigan, and the author of many books, including The New Phrenology: On the Localization of Cognitive Processes in the Brain (MIT Press).

The notion that particular areas of the brain mediate specific functions is central to neurological diagnosis. In the 19th century, phrenologists made the rather bolder suggestion that particular cortical functions were reflected in the shape of the overlying skull, a claim not thought credible nowadays.

However, William Uttal thinks that a modern variant of phrenology is alive and well, in Author: Geraint Rees. In this book Uttal addresses the question of localization: whether psychological processes can be defined and isolated in a way that permits them to be associated with particular brain regions.

Modularity of mind is the notion that a mind may, at least in part, be composed of innate neural structures or mental modules which have distinct, established, and evolutionarily developed functions.

However, different definitions of "module" have been proposed by different authors. According to Fodor, the author of Modularity of Mind, a system can be considered 'modular' if its functions are.The New Phrenology: The Limits of Localizing Cognitive Processes in the Brain.
