Where was the damage that Gage suffered? Where exactly was the damage in Broca’s patients, or Claparède’s? In this section, we fill in some basics of brain anatomy. indd 30 The Neural Basis for Cognition 8/14/09 2:00:04 PM A B Phineas Gage's Skull Phineas Gage was working as a construction foreman when some blasting powder misfired and launched a piece of iron into his cheek and through the front part of his brain. Remarkably, Gage survived and continued to live a more-or-less normal life, but his pattern of intellectual and emotional impairments provide valuable cues about the function of the brain’s frontal lobes.

This can drastically impede any sort of mental work in a noisy environment! We can also gather data from a very different source: So far, we have been concerned with people’s performance in our tasks—for example, how much or how well they remember. However, we can gain further insights into working memory by considering the biological mechanisms that make this performance possible. Th at is, we can draw evidence from the realm of cognitive neuroscience—the study of the biological basis for cognitive functioning.

They can, for example, add new measuring devices to the situation, or they can place various obstacles in the electron’s path. In this way, the scientist can gather more and more data, including data that are crucial for testing the specific predictions of a particular theory. indd 12 The Science of the Mind 8/14/09 1:59:28 PM gives science its power. It’s what allows scientists to assert that their hypotheses have been rigorously tested, and it’s what gives scientists assurance that their theories are correct.
