Playing with Razors… Looking at Kastrup
Modern science is largely comprised of interpreting data that has been generated via the development of instruments/machines that in essence act as extensions of the human sensory systems (sight, auditory, etc.). An example of this might be the microscope which was developed to see objects too small to be seen by the naked eye. Similarly (in an inverse manner), the telescope was developed to magnify distant objects.
When it comes to instruments that are utilized to measure brain activity, there are multiple types that generate very different data points. The most commonly used devices in field of neurology/neuroscience are the electroencephalogram (EEG), magnetoencephalogram (MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), computed tomography (CT), positron emission photography (PET), and the near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS).
EEG is a non-invasive device that utilizes electrodes...
