    Cognitive cooperation.David Sloan Wilson, John J. Timmel & Ralph R. Miller - 2004 - Human Nature 15 (3):225-250.
    Cooperation can evolve in the context of cognitive activities such as perception, attention, memory, and decision making, in addition to physical activities such as hunting, gathering, warfare, and childcare. The social insects are well known to cooperate on both physical and cognitive tasks, but the idea of cognitive cooperation in humans has not received widespread attention or systematic study. The traditional psychological literature often gives the impression that groups are dysfunctional cognitive units, while evolutionary psychologists have so far studied cognition (...)

    Altruism, evolutionary psychology, and learning.David Sloan Wilson & Ralph R. Miller - 2002 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (2):281-282.
    Rachlin's substantive points about the relationship between altruism and self-control are obscured by simplistic and outdated portrayals of evolutionary psychology in relation to learning theory.

    Behavioral momentum in Pavlovian conditioning and the learning/performance distinction.Hernán I. Savastano & Ralph R. Miller - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (5):694-695.
    Behavioral momentum theory has evolved within the realm of operant conditioning. The thought-provoking momentum metaphor equates the strength of an operant response with its resistance to change and preference (i.e., choice) for that response over other available responses. Whereas baseline response rate (velocity in the metaphor) is assumed to be largely influenced by the response-reinforcer contingency, resistance to change and preference are assumed to reflect an intervening variable called behavioral mass, which is determined primarily by the stimulus-reinforcer relationship. This invites (...)

    A one-system theory that is not propositional.James E. Witnauer, Gonzalo P. Urcelay & Ralph R. Miller - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (2):228-229.
    We argue that the propositional and link-based approaches to human contingency learning represent different levels of analysis because propositional reasoning requires a basis, which is plausibly provided by a link-based architecture. Moreover, in their attempt to compare two general classes of models (link-based and propositional), Mitchell et al. refer to only two generic models and ignore the large variety of different models within each class.

    Differentiating robotic behavior and artificial intelligence from animal behavior and biological intelligence: Testing structural accuracy.Ralph R. Miller & Francisco Arcediano - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (6):1070-1071.
    We emphasize the feature of Webb's presentation that bears most directly on contemporary research with real animals. Many neuroscience modelers erroneously conclude that a model that performs like an animal must have achieved this goal through processes analogous with those used by the animal. A simulation failure justifies rejecting a model, but success does not justify acceptance. However, an important benefit of models, successful or otherwise, is to stimulate new research.
