In this short talk we shall focus on probably the single most important tool in doing research in cognitive neuroscience, namely, functional magnetic resonance imaging, (fMRI).

We shall explain how with this method questions concerning higher cognitive processes in the brain are investigated and what kind of inferences can be made.
