Oh, one last thing - the legacy of mainstream psychology for neuroscience 
has been the mereological fallacy in which brain activities are described in 
the same terms as the phenomena that it is supposed to explain. The brain is 
said to see, to believe, to think, to decide, to feel, to be conscious, etc. 
etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. Talk about a retarded conceptualization. A 
better question than the one you asked is "Does the metaphorical world of 
cognitive "science" have anything to offer neuroscience? I mean a 
neuroscience that might actually one day be able to say how physiology 
mediates behavioral function?"
