    Reaching targets in the national cervical screening programme: are current practices unethical?P. Foster & C. M. Anderson - 1998 - Journal of Medical Ethics 24 (3):151-157.
    The principle of informed consent is now well established within the National Health Service (NHS) in relation to any type of medical treatment. However, this ethical principle appears to be far less well established in relation to medical screening programmes such as Britain's national cervical screening programme. This article will critically examine the case for health care providers vigorously pursuing women to accept an invitation to be screened. It will discuss the type of information which women would need in order (...)

    The function of the cerebellum in cognition, affect and consciousness: Empirical support for the embodied mind.J. D. Schmahmann, C. M. Anderson, N. Newton & R. Ellis - 2002 - Consciousness and Emotion 2 (2):273-309.
    Editors’ note: These four interrelated discussions of the role of the cerebellum in coordinating emotional and higher cognitive functions developed out of a workshop presented by the four authors for the 2000 Conference of the Cognitive Science Society at the University of Pennsylvania. The four interrelated discussions explore the implications of the recent explosion of cerebellum research suggesting an expanded cerebellar role in higher cognitive functions as well as in the coordination of emotional functions with learning, logical thinking, perceptual consciousness, (...)

    From molecules to mindfulness: How vertically convergent fractal time fluctuations unify cognition and emotion.C. M. Anderson - 2000 - Consciousness and Emotion 1 (2):193-226.
    Fractal time fluctuations of the spectral “1/f” form are universal in natural self-organizing systems. Neurobiology is uniquely infused with fractal fluctuations in the form of statistically self-similar clusters or bursts on all levels of description from molecular events such as protein chain fluctuations, ion channel currents and synaptic processes to the behaviors of neural ensembles or the collective behavior of Internet users. It is the thesis of this essay that the brain self-organizes via a vertical collation of these spontaneous events (...)
