The Brain-Behavior relationship. Towards a new duality?
Volume 9 Num. 2 - June 2009 - Pages 285-293
This paper highlights the strong
resurgence of the discussion on the relationships between brain and behavior from evidence
thrown by new techniques and methods of research and measurement in the field of
neurosciences. The discussion within the discipline has been directed to the postulation
on two levels of analysis: biological and psychological. I discuss that such distinction
leads to suggest the existence of new forms of dualism (mind-behavior; brain-behavior,
biological-psychological). It defines the psychological field of analysis which does not
exclude the consideration of biological components but it is not restricted to them.
Psychological phenomena are better conceived as a continuation from biological phenomena.
Finally, the paper refers to biological correlates of behavior as dispositional factors which
can have a catalytic effect on the interaction.
