Neuropsychological inference using a microphrenological approach does not need a locality assumption

  • Wim E. Crusio (a1)
    • Published online: 01 September 1997

Although Farah makes a convincing case against the tenability of the locality assumption, she does not propose alternative research strategies that do not rest on this assumption. It is proposed here that we may profitably exploit individual differences in neuroanatomy and behavior. In combination with the use of adequate genetic methods, this approach – termed microphrenology – does not need a locality assumption.
