In the early 20th century, the behaviorists emphasized observable behavior, rather than mental processes. However, new research in areas such as memory and language produced disenchantment with behaviorism, and the cognitive approach gained popularity during the 1960s. Researchers interested in cognitive neuroscience have developed a number of techniques to determine which structures in the brain are activated when people perform specific cognitive tasks.
