On the reality of the conjunction fallacy
Attributing higher “probability” to a sentence of formp-and-q, relative top, is a reasoning fallacy only if (1) the wordprobability carries its modern, technical meaning and (2) the sentencep isExpand

Distinct brain loci in deductive versus probabilistic reasoning
Deductive versus probabilistic inferences are distinguished by normative theories, but it is unknown whether these two forms of reasoning engage similar cerebral loci. To clarify the matter, positronExpand

New Evidence for Distinct Right and Left Brain Systems for Deductive versus Probabilistic Reasoning.
Deductive and probabilistic reasoning are central to cognition but the functional neuroanatomy underlying them is poorly understood. The present study contrasted these two kinds of reasoning viaExpand

Persistent differences in patterns of brain activation after sports-related concussion: a longitudinal functional magnetic resonance imaging study.
Avoiding recurrent injury in sports-related concussion (SRC) requires understanding the neural mechanisms involved during the time of recovery after injury. The decision for return-to-play is one ofExpand

Similarity, plausibility, and judgments of probability
Judging the strength of an argument may underlie many reasoning and decision-making tasks. In this article, we focus on "category-based" arguments, in which the premises and conclusion are of theExpand

On typicality and vagueness
Abstract Kamp and Partee (1995) make new and interesting proposals about the linguistic phenomena of typicality and vagueness. The proposals include a mechanism for computing the typicality ofExpand

Conceptual Combination with Prototype Concepts
This paper deals with how people combine simple, prototype concepts into complex ones; e.g., how people combine the prototypes for brown and apple so they can determine the typicality of objects inExpand

An early stage of conceptual combination: Superimposition of constituent concepts in left anterolateral temporal lobe
Conceptual combination is an essential cognitive process, yet little is known about its neural correlates. In the present study, a categorization task was used to evoke patterns of neural activationExpand

Influence of cognitive control on semantic representation
We present evidence that objects similar to each other in a given context are also represented more similarly in the brain and that these similarity relationships are modulated by context specific activations in frontal areas. Expand

A longitudinal diffusion tensor imaging study assessing white matter fiber tracts after sports-related concussion.
The extent of structural injury in sports-related concussion (SRC) is central to the course of recovery, long-term effects, and the decision to return to play. In the present longitudinal study, weExpand
