    Biorobotic simulations might offer some advantages over purely computational ones.Donald R. Franceschetti - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (6):1058-1059.
    A slight modification of Webb's diagrammatic representation of the dimensions for describing models is proposed which extends it to cover a range of theoretical models as well as material models. It is also argued that beyond a certain level robotic simulations could offer a number of real advantages over computer simulations of organisms interacting with their environment.

    Interlevel connections and agent evolution should not be overlooked.Donald R. Franceschetti - 1998 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (5):639-640.
    A consideration of underlying neural dynamics and the evolutionary process producing cognitive agents should complement the development of dynamical models of behavior. The geometrical aspects of dynamical systems theory which make it useful in the description of systems acting in an environment are less useful in understanding agents interacting with a range of environments, and may call for supplementation by evolutionary insights.

    Of skyhooks and the coevolution of scientific disciplines.Donald R. Franceschetti - 1999 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (5):836-837.
    The history of the natural sciences repeatedly shows that the unification of a higher level theory with a lower level theory by reduction does not eliminate the need for the higher level theory nor preclude its further development, leading to changes in the understanding of the lower level. The radical neuron doctrine proposes that the future science of psychology or linguistics will derive principally from the evolution of understanding at the neural level and not from current theories based on the (...)

    Quantum probability and cognitive modeling: Some cautions and a promising direction in modeling physics learning.Donald R. Franceschetti & Elizabeth Gire - 2013 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 36 (3):284-285.
    Quantum probability theory offers a viable alternative to classical probability, although there are some ambiguities inherent in transferring the quantum formalism to a less determined realm. A number of physicists are now looking at the applicability of quantum ideas to the assessment of physics learning, an area particularly suited to quantum probability ideas.

    Perceiving and describing motion events.Shulan Lu & Donald R. Franceschetti - 2003 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (3):295-296.
    According to Hurford, PREDICATE (x) is correlated with deictic object variables during event perception. This claim is inconsistent with some core literature on the perception of motion events. We point out that the perception of events involves the activation of the modal properties and amodal properties of underlying event structure, for which Hurford's target article fails to account.
