    The Appearance of the Child Prodigy 10,000 Years Ago: An Evolutionary and Developmental Explanation.Larry R. Vandervert - 2009 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 30 (1):15.
    Feldman and Goldsmith sought an evolutionary explanation of the child prodigy phenomenon. Following in this vein, a theory involving the evolution and development of the collaboration of working memory and the cognitive functions of the cerebellum is presented with commentary on Edmunds and Noel’s report on a child’s literary precocity. It is argued that the evolution of working memory and the cerebellum within the increasing rule-governed complexity of culture may have produced the child prodigy within agricultural villages as early as (...)

  4. The Evolution of Language: The Cerebro-Cerebellar Blending of Visual-Spatial Working Memory with Vocalizations.Larry Vandervert - 2011 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 32 (4):317.
    Leiner, Leiner, and Dow proposed that the co-evolution of cerebral cortex and the cerebellum over the last million years gave rise to the unique cognitive capacities and language of humans. Following the findings of recent imaging studies by Imamizu and his colleagues, it is proposed that over the last million or so years language evolved from the blending of decomposed/re-composed contexts or "moments" of visual-spatial experience with those of sound patterns decomposed/re-composed from parallel context-appropriate vocalizations . It is further proposed (...)

  5. A Measurable and Testable Brain-Based Emergent Interactionism.Larry R. Vandervert - 1991 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 201 (2):201-219.
    Possible measurement and testability weaknesses in Sperry's mind-supervenient emergent interactionism "argument by analogy" model are described. An alternative brain-supervenient interactionism that addresses the weaknesses of Sperry's mind-brain model is presented. The alternative model, Neurological Positivism - a systems-theoretical evolutionary epistemology - proposes that the measurable energy quality of the algorithmic organization of the Darwinian brain supervenes that of cultural mental models and thus downwardly influences the brain circuitry patterns that underlie them. Brain and mind are defined in interrelated energy terms (...)

    Neurological Positivism's Evolution of Mathematics.Larry Vandervert - 1993 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 14 (3):277-288.
    This article describes how Pribram's holonomic brain theory fits into Neurological Positivism's overall perspective of the evolution of the algorithmic organization of space and time in the brain. It is proposed that the principles of holonomic theory themselves represent a dynamical "diagram of forces" that have resulted from evolutionary processes - thus the holonomic space and time in the brain. The maximum-power evolution guided self-organizing, exteriorizing derivation of mathematics from the algorithmic patterns of the preadapted human brain is described. It (...)

    A Measurable And Testable Brain-Based Emergent Interactionism: An Alternative to Sperry's Mentalist Emergent Interactionism.Larry Vandervert - 1991 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 12 (2):210-220.

  9. Kuttner and Rosenblum Failed to "Objectify" Consciousness.Larry R. Vandervert - 2006 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 27 (2):167-176.
    Kuttner and Rosenblum's presentation of the "only objective evidence for consciousness" is criticized for not adequately defining consciousness , not providing at the outset an explanation of the philosophical-theoretical interpretation of quantum theory that would lead to a direct rationale for their "impossible" quantum experiments, and suggesting that data from their impossible experiments could be treated as non-theoretical "facts." It is concluded that Kuttner and Rosenblum fail to objectify consciousness.

  10. On the Modeling of Emergent Interaction: Which Will It Be, the Laws of Thermodynamics or Sperry's "Wheel" in the Subcircuitry?Larry R. Vandervert - 1991 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 12 (4):535-39.
    Weaknesses in Roger Sperry's "Defense of Mentalism" that appeared in the Spring issue of JMB are described. Sperry's clarification of his mentalist position still appears to lack a plausible mechanism of interaction. The wheel rolling down hill analogy is described as "a ghost in the subcircuitry." Neurological Positivism's energetic mechanism of brain-mind interaction is summarized. The relatioship of systems theory to reductionism is described briefly in terms of NP.

  11. Quanta Within the Copenhagen Interpretation as Two-Neuro-Algorithm Referents.Larry Vandervert - 1997 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 18 (2-3):229-246.
    Neurological Positivism’s single- and two-neuro-algorithmic referent conceptions of subjective and objective experience respectively are discussed. NP’s account of Bohr and Heisenberg’s Copenhagen interpretation of quantum reality is then described in terms of nonlinear constructions of two-neuro-algorithmic referents that are proposed also to undergird William James’s pragmatic conception of truth. In turn, qualia are depicted as nonlinear single-neuro-algorithmic referents in relation to the two-neuro-algorithmic quantum measurement procedure. Experientially, qualia are described as nonlinear "black twinkling" neuro-flux patterns which in the context of (...)

  12. Theory-Neutral" Explanations": A Final Note on Kuttner and Rosenblum's Approach to Science.Larry Vandervert - 2007 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 28 (1):77-79.
    To understand differences in perspective between Kuttner and Rosenblum’s and my view of the plausibility of theory-neutral quantum experiments, meta-theoretical differences between experimental physicists and theoretical physicists are examined. According to F.S.C. Northrop the perspective of experimental physicists is more toward the operational specification of “facts,” while the perspective of theoretical physicists is more toward how theory influences how we see “facts” and, at the epistemological level, what constitutes “facts.” It is pointed out that the same difference in perspective occurs (...)
