I examine the theoretical underpinnings of neuroscientists' and psychologists' attempts to explain mind and behavior in neurobiological terms, in particular understanding how the mechanistic explanatory model is being applied in the cognitive case. This includes examining the constraints on adequate models of cognitive processing, the relation of such models to brain activity, and the kinds of concepts introduced to decompose ordinary mental phenomena into the kinds of operations that appear in these models.
