Mechanisms of fluid cognition: Relational integration and inhibition

  • Indre V. Viskontas (a1) and Keith J. Holyoak (a1)

Blair argues that fluid cognition is dissociable from general intelligence. We suggest that a more complete understanding of this dissociation requires development of specific process models of the mechanisms underlying fluid cognition. Recent evidence indicates that relational integration and inhibitory control, both dependent on prefrontal cortex, are key component processes in tasks that require fluid cognition.
