Structural representations and the explanatory constraint

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


My aim in this paper is to investigate what epistemic role, if any, do appeals to representations play in cognitive neuroscience. I suggest that while at present they seem to play something in between a minimal and a substantive explanatory role, there is reason to believe that representations have a substantial contribution to the construction of neuroscientific explanations of cognitive phenomena.
