    Introducing Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and its Property of Causal Inference in Investigating Brain-Function Relationships.Dennis J. L. G. Schutter, Jack Van Honk & Jaak Panksepp - 2004 - Synthese 141 (2):155-173.
    Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a method capable of transiently modulating neural excitability. Depending on the stimulation parameters information processing in the brain can be either enhanced or disrupted. This way the contribution of different brain areas involved in mental processes can be studied, allowing a functional decomposition of cognitive behavior both in the temporal and spatial domain, hence providing a functional resolution of brain/mind processes. The aim of the present paper is to argue that TMS with its ability to (...)

    Extending the Global Workspace Theory to Emotion: Phenomenality Without Access.Dennis J. L. G. Schutter & Jack van Honk - 2004 - Consciousness and Cognition 13 (3):539-549.
    Recent accounts on the global workspace theory suggest that consciousness involves transient formations of functional connections in thalamo-cortico-cortical networks. The level of connectivity in these networks is argued to determine the state of consciousness. Emotions are suggested to play a role in shaping consciousness, but their involvement in the global workspace theory remains elusive. In the present study, the role of emotion in the neural workspace theory of consciousness was scrutinized by investigating, whether unconscious and conscious display of emotional compared (...)

    Raw Feeling: A Model for Affective Consciousness.Jack van Honk, Barak E. Morgan & Dennis J. L. G. Schutter - 2007 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (1):107-108.
    Seeking to unlock the secrets of consciousness, neuroscientists have been studying neural correlates of sensory awareness, such as meaningless randomly moving dots. But in the natural world of species' survival, “raw feelings” mediate conscious adaptive responses. Merker connects the brainstem with vigilance, orientating, and emotional consciousness. However, depending on the brain's phylogenetic level, raw feeling takes particular forms. (Published Online May 1 2007).

    Testosterone, Cortisol, Dominance, and Submission: Biologically Prepared Motivation, No Psychological Mechanisms Involved.Jack van Honk, Dennis J. L. G. Schutter, Erno J. Hermans & Peter Putman - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (1):160-160.
    Mazur & Booth's (1998) target article concerns basal and reciprocal relations between testosterone and dominance, and has its roots in Mazur's (1985; 1994) model of primate dominance-submissiveness interactions. Threats are exchanged in these interactions and a psychological stress-manipulation mechanism is suggested to operate, making sure that face-to-face dominance contests are usually resolved without aggression. In this commentary, a recent line of evidence from human research on the relation between testosterone, cortisol, and vigilant (dominant) and avoidant (submissive) responses to threatening “angry” (...)

    Schizophrenia: A Disorder of Affective Consciousness.Dennis J. L. G. Schutter & Jack van Honk - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (6):804-805.
    Behrendt & Young (B&Y) propose an explanation for schizophrenia in terms of a cortical default in the interaction between consciousness and cognition. However, schizophrenia more likely involves miscommunication between subcortical and cortical affective circuits in the brain, a default in the interaction between consciousness and emotion. The typical “affective” nature of hallucinations in schizophrenia provides compelling evidence for subcortical involvement.
