Understanding how the brain makes the mind takes an array of research methods. In this session, you'll learn the key principles, strengths, and limitations of brain injury studies, neural stimulation, and various recording techniques. The lecture video ends with a look at how research methods can help answer big questions about higher-level cognition, such as:
Is there a anatomical basis for empathy? Does a patient in a "vegetative state" have mental imagery like healthy individuals? Keywords: lesion, neural stimulation, TMS, recording, structure vs. function, CT, DTI, EEG, MEG, PET, fMRI
