What distinguishes good explanations in neuroscience from bad? Carl F. Craver constructs and defends standards for evaluating neuroscientific explanations that are grounded in a systematic view of what neuroscientific explanations are: descriptions of multilevel mechanisms.

In developing this approach, he draws on a wide range of examples in the history of neuroscience e. Hodgkin and Huxleys model of the action potential and LTP as a putative explanation for different kinds of memory , as well as recent philosophical work on the nature of scientific explanation.

Readers in neuroscience, psychology, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of science will find much to provoke and stimulate them in this book. Preface Chapter 1.

Explaining the Brain

Neuroscience has moved front and center in the public scientific consciousness. We all enjoy the color MRI pictures regularly published in news magazines. Newspapers regularly feature the latest in brain research. And pop media commentators interview neuroscientists with greater and greater frequency. Given how much attention has been paid to neuroscience, it is a little surprising how slow philosophy of science has been in exploring the philosophical issues involved in explaining the brain and using the brain to explain behavior.
