    The Paradox of the Missing Function: How Similar is Moral Mutualism to Biofunctional Understanding?Asghar Iran-Nejad & Fareed Bordbar - 2013 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 36 (1):93-94.
    We explain here how the natural selection theory of people's mutualistic sense of fairness and the biofunctional theory of human understanding are made for each other. We welcome the stage that the target article has already set for this convergence, and invite the authors to consider moving the two independently developed approaches a step closer to the natural selection level of biofunctional understanding.

    Knowledge, Self-Regulation, and the Brain-Mind Cycle of Reflection.Asghar Iran-Nejad - 2000 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 21 (1-2):67-88.
    The structure of everyday language implies that knowledge is an object. Like an object, it can be acquired, lost, stored, retrieved, and used. Anything that might be done to an external object could also be done to knowledge. Using concepts from the emerging field of biofunctional cognition, this paper discusses an alternative to the everyday-language framework of knowledge. The central idea is that the biological subsystems that comprise the physical nervous system have the capacity to create in us a live, (...)

    Bartlett's Schema Theory and Modern Accounts of Learning and Remembering.Asghar Iran-Nejad & Adam Winsler - 2000 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 21 (1-2):5-36.
    Although Bartlett's schema theory has been highly influential in modern cognitive psychology, it has often been misunderstood. This paper discusses Bartlett's schema theory along with modern schema theories, argues that the problems in the interpretation of Bartlett's writing arise because his theory is fundamentally different from modern schema theories, shows that Bartlett's theory, but not modern schema theories, can be explained in terms of the brain's constructive and self-regulatory processes, and discusses such a brain-based theory of learning and remembering in (...)
