The chapter focuses on the relationship between the brain and behavior, and discusses both how methods play an important role in cognitive neuroscience, as well as the contributions made by Michael Gazzaniga in the field of cognitive neuroscience. Gazzaniga, who is considered to be the greatest ambassador of cognitive neuroscience, launched the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience and created the Cognitive Neuroscience Society for better understanding and development in the discipline of cognitive neuroscience. Lesion studies and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) are two important methods, and the author discusses their significance in studying the relationship between the human brain and behavior.
