  1. Exploring the Conceptual and Semantic Structure of Human Kinship: An Experimental Investigation of Chinese Kin Terms.Chao Liu, Yue Ge, Xiaoqin Mai & Yue-Jia Luo - 2010 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 33 (5):392-394.
    We designed an experiment to test the application of optimality theory (OT) in kinship terminology studies. Specifically, we examined the OT constraints within a set of behavioral data using Chinese kin terms. The results from this behavioral approach support and extend Jones' linguistic approach by identifying underlying cognitive mechanisms that can explain and predict behavioral responses in kinship identification.

  • The Missing Link: Dynamic, Modifiable Representations in Working Memory.Graeme S. Halford, Steven Phillips & William H. Wilson - 2008 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (2):137-138.
    We propose that the missing link from nonhuman to human cognition lies with our ability to form, modify, and re-form dynamic bindings between internal representations of world-states. This capacity goes beyond dynamic feature binding in perception and involves a new conception of working memory. We propose two tests for structured knowledge that might alleviate the impasse in empirical research in nonhuman animal cognition.
