Abstract [en]

Swedish psychological disability research has grown strong focusing on a marriage between cognitive and communicative concepts, metatheoretically, within domain-relevant theoretical frameworks, and empirically. Critical realism, and its emphasis on different levels of description and explanation, has produced footprints in psychological disability research. Compatible with this metatheoretical construct, the logic has then been to apply cognitive concepts that successfully bind the cognitive with the social, and the cognitive with neural levels of explanation. This strategy is akin to a bio-psycho-social approach to disability research. We have called this strategy vertical integration, emphasizing concepts that have the potential of unifying and integrating knowledge across levels of explanation. Typically, one kind of disability/diagnosis is explored from these different levels. A complementary strategy is horizontal integration, where several diagnostic groups are compared regarding a paricular phenomenon or behavior. Both strategies interact dynamically during the course of knowledge development. "Vertical" research on hearing impairment and deafness has given additional insights into mechanisms of working memory, and "horizontal" research on developmental disorders, intellectual disability, and deafness have contributed to understanding the mechanisms of mentalization. Behavioral and neuroimaging data will be chosen to illustrate these points.
