This statement requires comments in two respects. First, how is it that "most neurobiologists" took until the later 1970s or early 1980s to recognize that activity and experience affect connections in the brain? Certainly accounts of the effects of experience on brain measures appeared in many neurobiological as well as psychological journals in the 1960s and early 1970s. This research was also reported in a cover article in the February 1972 Scientific American that discussed effects of experience on dendritic spine numbers and synaptic sizes, as well as other neural measures (Rosenzweig, Bennett, & Diamond, 1972).

360) argues that Posner and 1Kaichle put too much emphasis on localization in discrete neural areas and insufficient emphasis on interaction within networks of widely distributed systems. The poor temporal resolution of PET does not permit visualization of such interactions occurring within a few hundred milliseconds. For this reason, Posner, 1Kaichle, and associates (Snyder, Abdullaev, Posner, & 1Kaichle, 1995) have begun to combine the evoked-potential method, with its excellent temporal resolution, with PET to investigate the succession of processes in generating responses to visually presented nouns.
