    Neuroscience in Context: The New Flagship of the Cognitive Sciences.Wayne David Christensen & Luca Tommasi - 2006 - Biological Theory 1 (1):78-83.
    Cognitive neuroscience has come to be viewed as the flagship of the cognitive sciences and is transforming our understanding of the nature of mind. In this paper we survey several research fields in cognitive neuroscience and note that they are making rapid progress on fundamental issues. Lateralization research is developing a comparative framework for evolutionary analysis, and is identifying individual- and population-level factors that favor brain asymmetries. Neuroeconomics is creating a research framework for studying valuation mechanisms in the brain that (...)

    Color Categories in Biological Evolution: Broadening the Palette.Wayne D. Christensen & Luca Tommasi - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (4):492-493.
    The general structure of Steels & Belpaeme's (S&B's) central premise is appealing. Theoretical stances that focus on one type of mechanism miss the fact that multiple mechanisms acting in concert can provide convergent constraints for a more robust capacity than any individual mechanism might achieve acting in isolation. However, highlighting the significance of complex constraint interactions raises the possibility that some of the relevant constraints may have been left out of S&B's own models. Although abstract modeling can help clarify issues, (...)

  9. The Psychological Impact of COVID-19 in Italy: Worry Leads to Protective Behavior, but at the Cost of Anxiety.Giulia Prete, Lilybeth Fontanesi, Piero Porcelli & Luca Tommasi - 2020 - Frontiers in Psychology 11.
    The World Health Organization defined COVID-19 as a pandemic on March 11, due to the spread of the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in all continents. Italy had already witnessed a very fast spread that brought the Government to place the entire country under quarantine on March 11, reaching more than 30,700 fatalities in 2 months. We hypothesized that the pandemic and related compulsory quarantine would lead to an increase of anxiety state and protective behaviors to avoid infections. We aimed to investigate (...)

    Evolutionary Tango: Perceptual Asymmetries as a Trick of Sexual Selection.Luca Tommasi - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (4):614-615.
    I suggest that a communicative context that has the potential to establish and maintain a shared advantage of behavioral lateralization should be identified in the domain of sexual selection, specifically in the interactions that individuals exploit to assess the fitness of potential mates.

    Minimization of Modal Contours: An Instance of an Evolutionary Internalized Geometric Regularity?Giorgio Vallortigara & Luca Tommasi - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (4):706-707.
    The stratification in depth of chromatically homogeneous overlapping figures depends on a minimization rule which assigns the status of being “in front” to the figure that requires the formation of shorter modal contours. This rule has been proven valid also in birds, whose visual neuroanatomy is radically different from that of other mammals, thus suggesting an example of evolutionary convergence toward a perceptual universal.
