    Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary effort to understand the structures and functions of the brain and brain-mind relations. This effort results in an increasing amount of data, generated by sophisticated technologies. However, these data enhance our descriptive knowledge, rather than improve our understanding of brain functions. This is caused by methodological gaps both within and between subdisciplines constituting neuroscience, and the atomistic approach that limits the study of macro- and mesoscopic issues. Whole-brain measurement technologies do not resolve these issues, but rather (...)

    Can Humans Perceive Their Brain States?Boris Kotchoubey, Andrea Kübler, Ute Strehl, Herta Flor & Niels Birbaumer - 2002 - Consciousness and Cognition 11 (1):98-113.
    Although the brain enables us to perceive the external world and our body, it remains unknown whether brain processes themselves can be perceived. Brain tissue does not have receptors for its own activity. However, the ability of humans to acquire self-control of brain processes indicates that the perception of these processes may also be achieved by learning. In this study patients learned to control low-frequency components of their EEG: the so-called slow cortical potentials (SCPs). In particular ''probe'' sessions, the patients (...)

    Flagrant Misconduct of Reviewers and Editor: A Case Study.Boris Kotchoubey, Sarah Bütof & Ranganatha Sitaram - 2015 - Science and Engineering Ethics 21 (4):829-835.
    A case of a particularly severe misbehavior in a review process is described. Two reviewers simply copied and pasted their critical comments from their previous reviews without reading the reviewed manuscript. The editor readily accepted the reviewers’ opinion and rejected the manuscript. These facts give rise to some general questions about possible factors affecting the ethical behavior of reviewers and editors, as well as possible countermeasures to prevent ethical violations.

    Pragmatics, Prosody, and Evolution: Language is More Than a Symbolic System.Boris Kotchoubey - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (2):136-137.
    The model presented in the target article is biased towards a cognitive-symbolic understanding of language, thus ignoring its other important aspects. Possible relationships of this cognitive-symbolic subsystem to pragmatics and prosody of language are discussed in the first part of the commentary. In the second part, the issue of a purely social versus biological mechanisms for transition from protolanguage to properly language is considered.

    Signifying Nothing? Myth and Science of Cruelty.Boris Kotchoubey - 2006 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (3):232-233.
    Nell proposes another myth about human aggression, following thousands of old myths from Homer to Lorenz. Like all myths, this one might be partially true and partially false. However, the use of emotional and propagandistic effects, rather than evaluation of empirical results, obscures any attempt to describe the truth about cruelty. It is … full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5.

    Interrelationships of Factors of Social Development Are More Complex Than Life History Theory Predicts.Boris Kotchoubey - 2019 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 42.
    Life History Theory predicts a monotonous relationship between affluence and the rate of innovations and strong correlations within a cluster of behavioral features. Although both predictions can be true in specific cases, they are incorrect in general. Therefore, the author's explanations may be right, but they do not prove LHT and cannot be generalized to other apparently similar processes.

    Beyond Mechanism and Constructivism.Boris Kotchoubey - 2008 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (3):341-342.
    Neuroconstructivism is a hybrid of two incompatible philosophical traditions: a radical idealism insisting upon the free activity of the Subject; and a radical materialistic anthropomorphism, which ascribes inherent properties of humans (e.g., the ability to construct) to nonhuman objects or body parts (e.g., the brain). The two traditions can be combined only by obscuring or confusing the basic notions.

    Meta-Criteria to Formulate Criteria of Consciousness.Boris Kotchoubey - 2022 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 45.
    Any neurobiological model claiming explanation of a complex human phenomenon should start with an explicit definition of the explanandum. If a classical intensional definition is impossible, we can use a descriptive definition by listing necessary criteria. This commentary suggests four meta-criteria that different proposed criteria of consciousness should fulfill: phenomenological consensus, empirical evidence, domain specificity, and non-circularity.

    Seeing and Talking: Whorf Wouldn't Be Satisfied.Boris Kotchoubey - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (4):502-503.
    Although Steeles & Belpaeme's (S&B) results may be useful for development of technical devices, their significance for behavioral sciences is very limited. This is because the question the authors asked was “Why do people use similar words in a similar way?” rather than “How can similar words stand for similar experience?” The main problem is not shared word usage, but shared references.
