The ‘‘conscious’’ dorsal stream: Embodied simulation and its role in space and action conscious awareness and the neural correlates of social cognition are studied.

The physiology of coloured hearing. A PET activation study of colour-word synaesthesia.

The results suggest that colour-word synaesthesia may result from the activity of brain areas concerned with language and visual feature integration, as conscious visual experience appears to occur without activation of the primary visual cortex.

This article updates Tune's 1964 review of variables influencing human subjects' attempts at generating random sequences of alternatives. It also covers aspects not included in the original review

Inhibiting and facilitating conditions of the human smile: a nonobtrusive test of the facial feedback hypothesis.

The hypothesis that people's facial activity influences their affective responses was investigated by having subjects hold a pen in their mouth in ways that either inhibited or facilitated the muscles typically associated with smiling without requiring subjects to pose in a smiling face.

Sex determination in Bonellia viridis (Echiura: Bonelliidae): population dynamics and evolution

It is shown that only the ability of ESD larvae to adapt their ultimate sex both in competition for empty burrows and for mating within females gives them a competitive edge over nonadaptive response to feminising and/or masculinising signals and generally leads to fixation of E SD by small step evolution.
