neural circuits. Indeed, it may also be the case that the same population of neurons can guide distinctcognitive functions. Thus, hobby of a location in or more tasks, or impairment on multiple responsibilitiesbecause of a unmarried, small lesion, is probably explained either by way of a not unusual underlyingcharacteristic or via more than one features (Duncan & Owen, 2000; Farah, 1994; Shallice, 1988; Rumelhart& McClelland, 1986). Finally, both lesion approach and useful imaging percentage a reliance on ceterisparibus assumptions: that a single variable is being manipulated and all different things are same. Ceterisparibus assumptions create problems that are method-precise, however the underlying philosophical issue isone that each one techniques percentage. For example, in lesion research, a lack of reorganization isgenerally assumed: All different neural areas in a lesioned brain are assumed to be acting the same dutiesthey finished previous to lesion acquisition, and not obtaining the capabilities of the lesioned location. (Thisassumption almost honestly does not maintain in continual-level lesion patients; Farah, 2004.) In usefulimaging research, it's miles assumed that two responsibilities that differ theoretically in a unmarried cognitiveprocedure do now not differentially recruit neural regions for theoretically shared mission additives (Posner,Petersen, Fox, & Raichle, 1988). (This assumption is likewise not going to hold; Friston et al., 1996.) Inaddition to these shared inferential issues, there is an crucial difference within the kinds of inferences that canbe drawn from practical imaging and lesion strategies. In contrast to lesion research, practical imaging
