The Role of Functional Neuroimaging in Advancing Psychological Science
Time and Location
Saturday May 24, 2008, 9:30 AM - 11:20 AM
This symposium will address the utility and future of functional neural imaging, and in particular functional magnetic resonance imaging, in psychology. The use of these techniques has expanded rapidly, perhaps faster than the attention to the construct validity of what we believe we are measuring. Have these techniques advanced psychological science or have they simply produced maps of an illusory neural landscape? These issues, as well as the progress and promise in the field, are addressed.
