  1. Levels of Consciousness.Wojciech Pisula - 2016 - Open Journal of Philosophy 6 (1):51-58.
    Consciousness attracts the attention of researchers representing various disciplines. Hence, there is a demand for a theoretical tool that could integrate data and theoretical concepts originating from distinct fields. The paper proposes to use the framework of the theory of integrative levels. The development and the definitions of the concept of levels are briefly discussed. The final part of the paper presents a proposal for incorporating the levels of consciousness into the framework of the integrative levels theory.

    Warsaw Wild Captive Pisula Stryjek rats - Establishing a breeding colony of Norway Rat in captivity.Wojciech Pisula & Rafał Stryjek - 2008 - Polish Psychological Bulletin 39 (2):67-70.
    Warsaw Wild Captive Pisula Stryjek rats - Establishing a breeding colony of Norway Rat in captivity It is believed that the history of laboratory rat dates back to 1820-ies, which is about 300 generations. This relatively short evolutionary distance, drastically different environment and selective breeding could have caused differences in behaviour between the laboratory rat and his wild counterpart - Norway rat. The vast majority of research concerning differences between wild and laboratory rats was conducted over 30 years ago. The (...)

    Play and Exploration in Animals — A Comparative Analysis.Wojciech Pisula - 2008 - Polish Psychological Bulletin 39 (2):104-107.
    Play and Exploration in Animals — A Comparative Analysis Exploratory behavior and play are very often discussed together. However, despite many similarities they are two distinct forms of behavior. They have different evolutionary histories and they develop in different ways. Both forms of behavior play a crucial role in the development of sophisticated and complex psyche. The paper discusses similarities and differences between exploration and play. The hypothesis of the joint development of exploration, play and animal intelligence is proposed.

    Individual differences in police dog handlers.Piotr Kondrakiewicz, Katarzyna Fiszdon, Wojciech Pisula & Tadeusz Kaleta - 2011 - Polish Psychological Bulletin 42 (2):52-55.
    Individual differences in police dog handlers The Polish adaptation of the NEO-FFI inventory was used in the present study to assess the personality of dog handlers. For diagnosis of the emotional intelligence, the Polish scale Popular Questionnaire of Emotional Intelligence was used. There were 601 participants out of the total estimated number of 1408 police dog handlers in Poland. The results were compared with normalization tests for the measures used. The personality profile and emotional intelligence of dog handlers differ significantly (...)

    Individual differences in wild (WWCPS) rat — manifested in the exploration box.Wojciech Pisula - 2010 - Polish Psychological Bulletin 41 (1):31-35.
    Individual differences in wild rat — manifested in the exploration box Thirty nine WWCPS rats were tested in the exploration box throughout fifteen sessions. Factor analysis was run to extract the main dimensions describing rat behavior. Two factors were extracted, confirming the validity of the concept of two dimensional structure of individual differences in rats. Hierarchical cluster analysis run on factor scores showed that only three out of a possible four types of factor combinations are actually present within observed group (...)

    Response to spatial and nonspatial change in wild (WWCPS) and Wistar rats.Wojciech Pisula, Klaudia Modlińska & Rafał Stryjek - 2012 - Polish Psychological Bulletin 43 (2):124-131.
    Response to spatial and nonspatial change in wild and Wistar rats The purpose of the experiment was to investigate the effects of domestication on exploration in rats. The comparison was made between wild Warsaw-Wild-Captive-Pisula-Stryjek rats and Wistar laboratory rats. The study used a purpose-built maze divided into zones connected with a corridor. Objects were placed in two out of four zones. Their location and shape were subject to experimental manipulation. Transporter used to move rats to the maze provided the opportunity (...)
