    Assessing children's episodic future thinking by having them select items for future use may be assessing their functional reasoning about the future rather than their future episodic thinking. In an attempt to circumvent this problem, we capitalised on the fact that episodic cognition necessarily has a spatial format (Clayton & Russell, 2009; Hassabis & Maguire, 2007). Accordingly, we asked children of 3, 4, and 5 to chose items they would need to play a game (blow football) from the opposite side (...)

    Social Intelligence: From Brain to Culture.Nathan Emery, Nicola Clayton & Chris Frith (eds.) - 2007 - Oxford University Press.
    Why are humans so clever? This book explores the idea that this cleverness has evolved through the increasing complexity of social groups. It brings together contributions from leaders in the field, examining social intelligence in different animal species and exploring its development, evolution and the brain systems upon which it depends.

    Imaginative Scrub-Jays, Causal Rooks, and a Liberal Application of Occam's Aftershave.Nathan J. Emery & Nicola S. Clayton - 2008 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (2):134-135.
    We address the claim that nonhuman animals do not represent unobservable states, based on studies of physical cognition by rooks and social cognition by scrub-jays. In both cases, the most parsimonious explanation for the results is counter to the reinterpretation hypothesis. We suggest that imagination and prospection can be investigated in animals and included in models of cognitive architecture.

    Empirical Evaluation of Mental Time Travel.Caroline Raby, Dean Alexis, Anthony Dickinson & Nicola Clayton - 2007 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (3):330-331.
    Although the mental time travel (MTT) hypothesis provides a rich, conceptual framework, the absence of clear, empirically tractable, behavioural criteria for determining the capacity for MTT restricts its usefulness in comparative research. Examples of empirical criteria for evaluating MTT in animals are given. We also question the authors' evaluation of semantic foresight and their even-handedness in assessing human and nonhuman behaviour.

    Evidence From Convergent Evolution and Causal Reasoning Suggests That Conclusions on Human Uniqueness May Be Premature.Alex H. Taylor & Nicola S. Clayton - 2012 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 35 (4):241-242.
    We agree with Vaesen that there is evidence for cognitive differences between humans and other primates. However, it is too early to draw firm conclusions about the uniqueness of the cognitive mechanisms underlying human tool use. Tests of causal understanding are in their infancy, as is the study of animals more distantly related to humans.

    Can Jackdaws (Corvus Monedula) Select Individuals Based on Their Ability to Help?Auguste M. P. von Bayern, Nicola S. Clayton & Nathan J. Emery - 2011 - Interaction Studies 12 (2):262-280.
    Knowing the individual skills and competences of one's group members may be important for deciding from whom to learn (social learning), with whom to collaborate and whom to follow. We investigated whether 12 jackdaws could select conspecifics based on their helping skills, which had been exhibited in a previous context. The birds were tested in a blocked-exit-situation, where they could choose between two conspecifics, one of which could be recruited inside. One conspecific had previously displayed the ability to open the (...)
