    Childhood and Advances in Human Tool Use.Mark Nielsen - 2012 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 35 (4):232-233.
    Human life history incorporates childhood, a lengthy post-weaning period of dependency. This species-specific period provides an opportunity for extensive learning and for sophisticated cultural behaviors to develop, including crucial tool use skills. Although I agree that no individual cognitive trait singularly differentiates humans from other animals, I suggest here that without childhood, the traits that are key to human tool use would not emerge.

    William James and the Evolution of Consciousness.Mark Nielsen & R. H. Day - 1999 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 19 (1):90-113.
    Despite having been relegated to the realm of superstition during the dominant years of behaviorism, the investigation and discussion of consciousness has again become scientifically defensible. However, attempts at describing animal consciousness continue to be criticized for lacking independent criteria that identify the presence or absence of the phenomenon. William James recognized that mental traits are subject to the same evolutionary processes as are physical characteristics and must therefore be represented in differing levels of complexity throughout the animal kingdom. James's (...)

    The Social Motivation for Social Learning.Mark Nielsen - 2008 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (1):33-33.
    Through the second year, children’s copying behaviour shifts from a focus on emulating to a focus on imitating. This shift can be explained by a change in focus from copying others to satisfy cognitive motivations to copying in order to satisfy social motivations. As elegant and detailed as the shared circuits model (SCM) is, it misses this crucial, motivation-based feature of imitation.
