Overview

The cognitive neuroscience revolution rests on two corner stones: simple experimental paradigms to capture critical components of the mind and new methods to watch what the brain is doing while working in these paradigms. Michael I. Posner has been a driving force behind the use of componential and functional analysis to enhance our knowledge of mind-brain relationships. His scholarship has been pivotal in opening up new theoretical and methodological trajectories in the field. Moreover, he has actively promoted the expansion of the cognitive neuroscience program to encompass psychology.
