Human neuroscience research has produced few significant advances in diagnosing, predicting, treating, and preventing mental illness. I’ll argue that one major reason for poor progress in clinical neuroscience is a failure to adequately consider the distinction between within- and between-subjects comparisons. Explaining differences between people requires measures with good psychometric properties. Robust, group-level differences from within-subject contrasts does not imply adequate internal consistency for understanding individual differences. I’ll propose basic approaches for choosing and optimizing tasks and resultant fMRI/ERP measures, and how they might be combined in the real world to improve classification of psychopathology.
