    Jason S. McCarley & Gregory J. DiGirolamo (2001). One Visual System with Two Interacting Visual Streams. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (1):112-113.
    Norman's aim to reconcile two longstanding and seemingly opposed philosophies of perception, the constructivist and the ecological, by casting them as approaches to complementary subsystems within the visual brain is laudable. Unfortunately, Norman overreaches in attempting to equate direct perception with dorsal/unconscious visual processing and indirect perception with ventral/conscious visual processing. Even a cursory review suggests that the functional and neural segregation of direct and indirect perception is not as clear as the target article would suggest.

    Kevin M. Spencer & Robert W. McCarley (2005). Visual Hallucinations, Attention, and Neural Circuitry: Perspectives From Schizophrenia Research. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (6):774-774.
    We tested Collerton et al.'s model of visual hallucinations by re-examining a data set for correlations between visual hallucinations and measures of attentional function in schizophrenia patients. These data did not support their model. We suggest that cortical hyperexcitability plays an important role in hallucinations, and propose an alternative model that links evidence for cortical hyperexcitability with abnormal neural dynamics.

    Amina Khambalia & Colin M. Shapiro (2000). A New Approach for Explaining Dreaming and Rem Sleep Mechanisms. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (6):558-559.
    The following review summarizes and examines Mark Solms's article Dreaming and REM Sleep are controlled by different brain mechanisms, which argues why the understanding of REM sleep as the physiological equivalent of dreaming needs to be re-analyzed. An analysis of Solms's article demonstrates that he makes a convincing argument against the paradigmatic activation-synthesis model proposed by Hobson and McCarley and provides provocative evidence to support his claim that REM and dreaming are dissociable states. In addition, to situate Solms's findings (...)

    Diane C. Gooding & Jacqueline G. Braun (2003). Cognitive Coordination Deficits: A Necessary but Not Sufficient Factor in the Development of Schizophrenia. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (1):89-90.
    The Phillips & Silverstein model of NMDA-mediated coordination deficits provides a useful heuristic for the study of schizophrenic cognition. However, the model does not specifically account for the development of schizophrenia-spectrum disorders. The P&S model is compared to Meehl's seminal model of schizotaxia, schizotypy, and schizophrenia, as well as the model of schizophrenic cognitive dysfunction posited by McCarley and colleagues.
