    Natural Disaster Induced Cognitive Disruption: Impacts on Action Slips.William S. Helton, James Head & Simon Kemp - 2011 - Consciousness and Cognition 20 (4):1732-1737.
    Previous research has indicated an increase in stress levels and cognitive intrusions after natural disasters. These previous studies have not, however, assessed the impact disaster induced cognitive disruption has on human performance. In the present report, we investigated the impact of the 7.1 magnitude 2010 Christchurch, New Zealand earthquake on self-reported earthquake-induced cognitive disruption and its relationship to performance on the Sustained Attention to Response Task . Participants who self-reported greater cognitive disruption induced by the earthquake also had higher levels (...)

    Press Freedom, Oil Exports, and Risk for Natural Disasters: A Challenge for Climato-Economic Theory?Joana Arantes, Randolph C. Grace & Simon Kemp - 2013 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 36 (5):483-483.
    Does the interaction between climactic demands, monetary resources, and freedom suggest a more general relationship between the environmental challenges that human societies face and their resources to meet those challenges? Using data on press freedom (Van de Vliert 2011a), we found no evidence of a similar interaction with natural resources (as measured by oil exports) or risk for natural disasters.

    Quantum Probability and Comparative Cognition.Randolph C. Grace & Simon Kemp - 2013 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 36 (3):287-287.
    Evolution would favor organisms that can make recurrent decisions in accordance with classical probability (CP) theory, because such choices would be optimal in the long run. This is illustrated by the base-rate fallacy and probability matching, where nonhumans choose optimally but humans do not. Quantum probability (QP) theory may be able to account for these species differences in terms of orthogonal versus nonorthogonal representations.

    What Does the Ultimatum Game Mean in the Real World?Randolph C. Grace & Simon Kemp - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (6):824-825.
    The predictive validity of the ultimatum game (UG) for cross-cultural differences in real-world behavior has not yet been established. We discuss results of a recent meta-analysis (Oosterbeek et al 2004), which examined UG behavior across large-scale societies and found that the mean percent offers rejected was positively correlated with social expenditure.

    Operant Contingencies and “Near-Money”.Simon Kemp & Randolph C. Grace - 2006 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (2):188-188.
    We make two major comments. First, negative reinforcement contingencies may generate some apparent “drug-like” aspects of money motivation, and the operant account, properly construed, is both a tool and drug theory. Second, according to Lea & Webley (L&W), one might expect that “near-money,” such as frequent-flyer miles, should have a stronger drug and a weaker tool aspect than regular money. Available evidence agrees with this prediction. (Published Online April 5 2006).

    The Inescapable Metaphor: How Time and Meaning Become Space When We Think About Narrative.Simon Kemp - 2012 - Philosophy and Literature 36 (2):391-403.
    At the end of the sixth volume of The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Laurence Sterne’s irremediably digressive narrator looks back over the story he has told so far. He presents to the reader five horizontal lines drawn on the page, each of which is the line taken by the narrative in one of the preceding five volumes of the novel.1 Each of the lines is interrupted at intervals by a series of fantastical loops and squiggles, darting forward or (...)
