    Memory Reconsolidation Keeps Track of Emotional Changes, but What Will Explain the Actual “Processing”?Antonio Pascual-Leone & Juan Pascual-Leone - 2015 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 38.
    We question memory reconsolidation and emotional arousal as sufficient determinants of therapeutic change. Generating new feelings and meanings must be contrasted with activating and stabilizing the evolving memories that reflect those novel experiences. Some therapeutic changes are not attributable to a memory model alone. “Emotional processing” is also needed and is often an undeclared form of complex executive problem solving.

  2. Mental Attention, Not Language, May Explain Evolutionary Growth of Human Intelligence and Brain Size.Juan Pascual-Leone - 2006 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (1):19-20.
    Using neoPiagetian theory of mental attention (or working memory), I task-analyze two complex performances of great apes and one symbolic performance (funeral burials) of early Homo sapiens. Relating results to brain size growth data, I derive estimates of mental attention for great apes, Homo erectus, Neanderthals, and modern Homo sapiens, and use children's cognitive development as reference. This heuristic model seems consistent with research.

    If the Magical Number is 4, How Does One Account for Operations Within Working Memory?Juan Pascual-Leone - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (1):136-138.
    Cowan fails to obtain a magical number of 7 because his analysis is faulty. This is revealed by an alternative analysis of Cowan's own tasks. The analysis assumes a number 7 for adults, and neoPiagetian mental- capacity values for children. Data patterns and proportions of success (reported in Cowan's Figs. 2 and 3) are thus quantitatively explained in detail for the first time.

    Hidden Operators of Mental Attention Applying on LTM Give the Illusion of a Separate Working Memory.Juan Pascual-Leone - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (5):709-711.
    The authors' results support a functionalist conception of working memory: a manifold repertoire of schemes/schemas (long-term memory) and a small set of general-purpose “hidden operators.” Using some of these operators I define mental (i.e., endogenous) attention. Then, analyzing two of the authors' unexplained important findings, I illustrate the mental-attention model's explanatory power. Multivariate methodology that varies developmental, task differences, and individual differences is recommended.

    To Appraise Developmental Difficulty or Mental Demand, Relational Complexity is Not Enough.Juan Pascual-Leone - 1998 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (6):843-844.
    Two assertions of Halford et al. are critiqued: their claim of priority in relational complexity analysis and the sufficiency for cognitive development of their relational-complexity analysis of tasks. Critical discussion of concrete task analyses (i.e., the relational complexity of proportionality problems, of balance scale problems, and the Tower of Hanoi) serves, by way of counterexamples, to highlight problems in their method.
