Neural Correlates of Deductive Reasoning

A recent study in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience has isolated activation in the brain during a 3-stage model of deductive reasoning.

The study shows that during the ‘premise processing’ stage, there is more activity in occipito-temporal areas. During the ‘integration phase’, anterior prefrontal cortex is more active. During the final ‘valdiation phase’, the find more activity in posterior parietal and prefrontal areas.

AI started working on reasoning early on. Will studies like this lead us to the next advance in building models of reasoning?
