Abstract. The article examines the problem of the rational explanation of "context of discovery" in the light of the achievements of the neuro-scientific and cognitive trends of the psychology of science. The author points out that such researches are aimed to "demystificate" the cognitive processes involved into a new idea generation. The paper analyzes the results of studying the effect of confirmation using neuro-visualization; studying associative memory under the conditions of uncertainty and the role of analogy while generating new hypotheses. The author justifies the necessity to include the interpretations of such research results into the general philosophical analysis of scientific search.
