This chapter focuses on the confirmation, refutation, and evidence of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data, and discusses the application of neuroimaging techniques to various fields, including cognitive sciences. It addresses the question of the role of neuroimaging data in providing informative evidence regarding hypotheses in cognitive science and explains differences in data, high-level null hypotheses, and ways to accommodate null hypotheses. Finally, the chapter looks into the scope of neuroimaging data in the cognitive sciences.

Keywords:   fMRI, cognitive sciences, neuroimaging data, confirmation, refutation, null hypotheses
