Evidence in cognitive science

Cognitive science is still at a primitive stage where it hasn't fully settled on what is to be considered evidence.

Good point, and a bad omission on my part. Operating within the context that cognitive science / psychology is science, this does contradict Mammuthus' characterization of how science operates... but maybe we just want to push this into the "Is psychology science?" thread as an argument against that viewpoint.

Cognitive science - is it scientific
It is my impression that there is a lot of skepticism of cogsci among research psychologists. I will be interested in what Zhimbo has to say about it.
