The aim of the present literature survey is to estimate how many of the studies recently made available in journals devoted to cognitive neuroscience have actually pursued Goal 2, in terms of evaluating theories of cognition. Expressed in another way, the aim of the present paper is to estimate how many recent neuroimaging studies actually comprise relevant ways of exploring the human mind, thus giving rise to new disciplines as a critical contribution to the Decade of the Mind Initiative (Albus et al., 2007).
