  1. P. P. Molen (1984). BI-Stability of Emotions and Motivations: An Evolutionary Consequence of the Open-Ended Capacity for Learning. Acta Biotheoretica 33 (4).score: 300.0
    Species, endowed with an open-ended capacity for learning, which is one of the highest evolutionary achievements,will profit most from this ability, if they are urged one way or other to invest any surplus of energy in expanding and refining their behavioural repertoire and in adapting it to prevailing circumstances, while incurring as little risk and stress as possible.It is therefore argued that an open-ended capacity for learning is maximally adding to survival if paired to two distinct tendencies:1) a tendency to (...)

  2. Popko P. Molen (1979). The Ethology of Inter-Individual Differences. Acta Biotheoretica 28 (2).score: 240.0
    In recent times psychologists have shown a growing interest in ethological methods of data collection. At the same time ethologists are showing a growing interest in the methods of data processing as developed in personality psychology. These methods of data processing appear to be most useful to ethological research when investigating differences between individuals. Using factor analysis of aggressive behaviour as an example, it is argued that an ethological approach which focusses on individual differences may add substantial information to the (...)

  3. Wery P. M. Van den Wildenberg Hilde M. Huizenga, Maurits W. Van der Molen, Anika Bexkens, Marieke G. N. Bos (2012). Muscle or Motivation? A Stop-Signal Study on the Effects of Sequential Cognitive Control. Frontiers in Psychology 3.score: 24.0
    Performance in cognitive control tasks deteriorates when these tasks are performed together with other tasks that also require cognitive control, that is, if simultaneous cognitive control is required. Surprisingly, this decrease in performance is also observed if tasks are preceded by other cognitive control tasks, that is, if sequential cognitive control is required. The common explanation for the latter finding is that previous acts of cognitive control deplete a common resource, just like a muscle becomes fatigued after repeated use. An (...)
