    Role of Visuospatial Sketchpad in Second Language Acquisition.Somya Bhatnagar & Pankaj Singh - 2024 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 24 (1-2):35-50.
    In the prior studies, the significance of working memory is linked to language acquisition which helped in understanding these disorders better (Wen, & Li, 2019). However, there is one component that is not being taken into consideration with Second Language Acquisition (SLA) (Choi, 2019). This study collected data from 122 adolescents and young adults (Female = 61, Male = 61) in the age range 15–22 years. Using four subtests of David’s Battery of Differential Abilities (DBDA), measures of VSSP and verbal (...)

    Evolution of the Parietal Lobe in the Formation of an Enhanced “Sense of Self”.Daniel Cohen & Brick Johnstone - 2024 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 24 (1-2):91-120.
    Recent neuropaleontological research suggests that the parietal lobe has increased in size as much as the frontal lobes in Homo Sapiens over the past 150,000 years, but has not provided a neuropsychological explanation for the evolution of human socialization or the development of religion. Drawing from several areas of research, (i.e., neurodevelopment, neuropsychology, paleoneurology, cognitive science, archeology, and anthropology), we argue that parietal evolution in Homo sapiens integrated sensations and mental processes into a more integrated subjective “sense of self”. This (...)

    The Evolution of Apolline divination in Asia Minor: The Architecture of Claros and its Cognitive Inputs.Giulia Frigerio - 2024 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 24 (1-2):75-90.
    This article investigates the agency of the architecture of the Temple of Apollo at Claros and its cognitive impact on the ritual of divination. In the comparison with Delphi, Claros represents a peculiar example of how architecture evolved to suit and shape at the same time the ritual it was hosting. The paper starts with the analysis of the exteriors of the building, highlighting the choice of the Doric style dictated by the desire of being associated to Delphi. A further (...)

    Supernatural Belief in ‘Scientific’ Worldviews?Roosa Haimila, Hanne Metsähinen & Mark Sevalnev - 2024 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 24 (1-2):1-34.
    A ‘scientific worldview’ is commonly seen as contradictory to belief in supernatural forces, and there is little research on the supernatural beliefs of individuals who identify with science. In this article, we investigate the supernatural explanations of science-oriented individuals in domains of fundamental concern (suffering, death, and origins), and how supernatural causality is reconciled with belief in science. The open-ended responses of 387 Finns were analysed. The results show that science-oriented Finns endorsed both religion-related and more secular supernatural beliefs (such (...)
