Grounding conceptual knowledge in modality-specific systems
Theoretical research shows how modality-specific re-enactments could produce basic conceptual functions, such as the type-token distinction, categorical inference, productivity, propositions and abstract concepts. Expand
Base-rate respect: From ecological rationality to dual processes.
It is concluded that the best account of the data should be framed in terms of a dual-process model of judgment, which attributes base-rate neglect to associative judgment strategies that fail to adequately represent the set structure of the problem. Expand
Cognitive and neural foundations of religious belief
The results are unique in demonstrating that specific components of religious belief are mediated by well-known brain networks, and support contemporary psychological theories that ground religious belief within evolutionary adaptive cognitive functions. Expand

Recent neuroscience evidence is surveyed to elucidate how general intelligence, g, emerges from individual differences in the network architecture of the human brain. Expand
Superior Parietal Cortex Is Critical for the Manipulation of Information in Working Memory
In recent years, theoretical perspectives on posterior parietal function have evolved beyond the traditional visuospatial processing models to include more diverse cognitive operations, such asExpand
An integrative architecture for general intelligence and executive function revealed by lesion mapping.
The observed findings support an integrative framework for understanding the architecture of general intelligence and executive function, supporting their reliance upon a shared fronto-parietal network for the integration and control of cognitive representations and making specific recommendations for the application of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale and Delis-Kaplan Executive Function System to the study of high-level cognition in health and disease.

For want of a nail: How absences cause events.
The findings show not only how causation by omission can be grounded in the physical world but also why only certain absences, among the potentially infinite number of absences), are causal. Expand
Small sample sizes reduce the replicability of task-based fMRI studies
An assessment of replicability of task-based fMRI studies as a function of sample size is found and standards requiring larger sample sizes are advocated, potentially in excess of N = 100. Expand
The neural bases of key competencies of emotional intelligence
EI should be viewed as complementary to cognitive intelligence and, when considered together, provide a more complete understanding of human intelligence. Expand
Dorsolateral prefrontal contributions to human working memory
The findings elucidate the architecture of working memory, providing key neuropsychological evidence for the necessity of dlPFC in the manipulation of verbal and spatial knowledge. Expand
