    If we could talk to the animals.Michael Siegal & Rosemary Varley - 2008 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (2):146-147.
    The thesis of discontinuity between humans and nonhumans requires evidence from formal reasoning tasks that rules out solutions based on associative strategies. However, insightful problem solving can be often credited through talking to humans, but not to nonhumans. We note the paradox of assuming that reasoning is orthogonal to language and enculturation while employing the criterion of using language to compare what humans and nonhumans know.

    Language, cognition, and the nature of modularity: Evidence from aphasia.Rosemary Varley & Michael Siegal - 2002 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (6):702-703.
    We examine Carruthers’ proposal that sentences in logical form serve to create flexibility within central system modularity, enabling the combination of information from different modalities. We discuss evidence from aphasia and the neurobiology of input-output systems. This work suggests that there exists considerable capacity for interdomain cognitive processing without language mediation. Other challenges for a logical form account are noted.

    Plasticity in high-order cognition: Evidence of dissociation in aphasia.Rosemary Varley - 2007 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (2):171-172.
    High-order constructs such as intelligence result from the interaction of numerous processing systems, one of which is language. However, in determining the role of language in intelligence, attention must be paid to evidence from lesion studies and, in particular, evidence of dissociation of functions where high-order cognition can be demonstrated in face of profound aphasia.

    Words, grammar, and number concepts: Evidence from development and aphasia.Rosemary Varley & Michael Siegal - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (6):1120-1121.
    Bloom's book underscores the importance of specifying the role of words and grammar in cognition. We propose that the cognitive power of language lies in the lexicon rather than grammar. We suggest ways in which studies involving children and patients with aphasia can provide insights into the basis of abstract cognition in the domain of number and mathematics.
