Experimental design and interpretation of functional neuroimaging studies of cognitive processes

David Caplan
2009 Human Brain Mapping  
It is not now known whether there are areas of cortex with higher percentages of inhibitory neurons. If there are, BOLD signal increases in these areas can be interpreted accordingly.  ...  I argue that certain designs in common use-in particular the contrast of qualitatively different representations that are processed at parallel stages of a functional architecture-can never identify the  ...  of the issues raised here and comments on earlier drafts of this article, and to the editors of Human Brain Mapping for suggestions regarding exposition and style.  ...
