This chapter focuses on the experimental designs developed for neuroimaging studies. It examines the various forms of experimental design used for functional neuroimaging, with a particular emphasis on the role of these designs in constraining inferences, and presents a discussion on decomposability of the mental processes. The chapter provides detailed information on the subtraction method, including its core problems, advantages, and alternatives to the subtraction approach. It discusses conjunction analysis and several experimental designs, including factorial designs, parametric designs, and priming/adaptation designs.

Keywords:   experimental designs, mental decomposition, subtraction method, priming/adaptation designs, conjunction analysis, factorial designs
