Methodological problems of neuroscience

In David Rose & Vernon Dobson (eds.), Models of the Visual Cortex. New York: John Wiley & Sons (1985)
Abstract
In this paper I argue that neuroscience has been harmed by the widespread adoption of seriously inadequate methodologies or philosophies of science - most notably inductivism and falsificationism. I argue that neuroscience, in seeking to understand the human brain and mind, needs to follow in the footsteps of evolution.
