Cognitive neuroscience is a field that has developed to bridge the gap between cognitive science, which focuses on the mind, and neuroscience, which focuses on the brain. Classically, cognitive scientists consider the mind to be software that runs on the hardware of the brain. We argue that this computer metaphor is flawed, and that there is no evidence that the mind exists independently of the brain. Thus, we need new cognitive neuroscience models that incorporate both cognitive and neural data.
