Neuropsychology still needs to model organismic processes “from within”

  • Juan Pascual-Leone (a1), Antonio Pascual-Leone (a2) and Marie Arsalidou (a1) (a3)
Abstract

Four issues are discussed: (1) differences between cognition and emotion; (2) affect, emotion, and motivation differentials, including a neuropsychological model of motivation; (3) mental attention (working memory) as a resource neither affective nor cognitive, but applicable to both; and (4) explication of neuropsychological scheme units, which have neuronal circuits as functional infrastructure, thus helping to clarify the semantics of functional connectivity.
