This way of thinking about psychology leaves little room for cognitive science as the scientific study of cognition and the mind. Cognitive science could not even get started until behaviorism ceased to be the dominant approach within psychology.
The three chapters in Part IV look at different ways of tackling this second problem. Chapter 10 examines the idea that some forms of information processing are carried out by dedicated cognitive modules. It looks also at the radical claim, proposed by evolutionary psychologists, that the mind is simply a collection of specialized modules. In Chapter 11 we look at how some recently developed techniques such as functional neuroimaging can be used to study the organization of the mind. Chapter 12 shows how the theoretical and methodological issues come together by working through an issue that has received much attention in contemporary cognitive science – the issue of whether there is a dedicated cognitive system response for our understanding of other people (the so-called mindreading system).

Here too there seems to be an upper bound on the number of distinct items that can be processed simultaneously. Putting these (and many other) experimental results into the context of information theory led Miller to propose that our sensory systems are all information channels with roughly the same channel capacity (where the channel capacity of an information channel is given by the amount of information it can reliably transmit).
