Recently, we studied the neural basis of medical reasoning. Based on the results, we challenge the popular concept of dual-process reasoning and propose a more integrative dynamic view. To that end, the old concept of ‘schematic-anticipation’ deserves a revival and we suggest that this may be backed by modern neuroscience.
Scientists are making new efforts to pool their neuroimaging data. Currently, structural and functional data of approximately 3,000 people diagnosed with PTSD, acquired in many different labs around the globe, are being analyzed conjointly. Will this produce more valid results on alterations? in brain structure and brain function?
