Some recent research reported here suggests the fMRI studies may present a misleading picture of brain activity. Such studies are used to provide evidence that certain areas of the brain are active when a person is engaged in a target task. However the new research has demonstrated that, while certain areas may be especially active, it isn’tt a question of them being the only active areas – they are simply more active than the rest of the brain. This means that conclusions that link a specific area of the brain to a specific behaviour may be unjustified, because many other areas are also involved.
