    Relations Between Emotion, Memory Encoding, and Time Perception.Laura W. Johnson & Donald G. MacKay - 2018 - Cognition and Emotion 33 (2):185-196.
    ABSTRACTThis study examined duration judgments for taboo and neutral words in prospective and retrospective timing tasks. In the prospective task, participants attended to time from the beginning and generated shorter duration estimates for taboo than neutral words and for words that they subsequently recalled in a surprise free recall task. These findings suggested that memory encoding took priority over estimating durations, directing attention away from time and causing better recall but shorter perceived durations for taboo than neutral words. However, in (...)

    Why Facts Neither Speak for Themselves nor Resolve the Psi Controversy: The View From the Rational Epistemology.Donald G. MacKay - 1990 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 13 (2):385-386.
    Claims that representatives of both sides of the psi debate (e.g., J. E. Alcock; K. R. Rao and J. Palmer [see PA, Vol 76:10501 and 10507]) have implicitly adopted the empirical epistemology without spelling out or systematically applying the rational epistemology, an essential step for both psychology and parapsychology.

    Contraconscious Internal Theories Influence Lexical Choice During Sentence Completion.Donald G. MacKay & Toshi Konishi - 1994 - Consciousness and Cognition 3 (2):196-222.
    This paper examines how inner theories influence lexical choice. Subjects in one study completed auditorily presented sentence fragments, some of which contained nonhuman antecedents such as dog and cat. Subjects were more likely to use human pronouns rather than it for referring to pets rather than nonpets , and antecedents that were liked rather than disliked , familiar rather than unfamiliar , named rather than unnamed , rational rather than nonrational , and engaging in typically human rather than nonhuman activities (...)
