Just whining about being old
And by the way, it amazes me how much one tool has revolutionized "mind" studies (vs. brain studies) so much. I assume equal discovries in physics, and space and shit are equally revolutionizing. There is more to learn, to study, than we can ever have time to do, adn we just keep inventing things to go deeper, farther, smaller, larger, etc.
humans and science be stud muffins!
There's a lot of neuro-hype surrounding fMRI scans, though. (Look at the pretty brain pictures!) As Jerry Fodor once said: "It’s been clear for a while now that mental processes occur north of the neck. The rest is a sort of biological bookkeeping."
It is true, though, that one of the big problems with early cognitive models is that they ignored the brain (in the earliest cases, this wasn't really a choice, though, so much as a result of cognitive neuroscience not existing). After Damasio, it's a travesty that an emotional component is still absent from so many cognitive architectures -- though that's beginning to change.
