Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The findings and theories from cognitive psychology can yield insights into brain organization, even if our understanding of cognitive processes is imperfect, and that neuroimaging evidence can contribute to the development of psychological theories and inspire novel research, even if our understanding of brain function is imperfect. This chapter illustrates this point by considering how imaging research on the relationship between working and long-term memory has contributed to, and benefited from, cognitive psychology.
