Even Neuroscientists have Dualistic Habits

Today I ran into a very fine 2014 article in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience (linked here) which shows how mind-body dualism is such a strong cognitive illusion that even people who know that mind and brain are the same (most neuroscientists), they still use dualistic language in describing functions of the brain. The authors of the article give a table of examples of the incorrect phrasings of many neuroscientist and then offer suggestions for more accurate expressions without using dualistic language.

If any readers would like to discuss, please make comments.
