This chapter describes a component-process approach in investigating the neural correlates of cognition, using the Multiple-Entry, Modular (MEM) framework, which defines a set of basic 'building blocks' of cognition that, when combined, could form the many more complex operations of which the mind is capable. It also describes studies using neuroimaging to test and characterize the component processes of this model.
