Danielle Carr writes, "It’s true that fMRI is a valid scientific tool with manifold research uses illuminating what happens in the brain. It’s also true that deciding what fMRI images mean is fraught with multiple moments of contingency and interpretation." This is true for all evidence, not only for fMRI. It's just that fMRI requires rather more interpretation than most forms of evidence.
