    How the Brain Understands Intention: Different Neural Circuits Identify the Componential Features of Motor and Prior Intentions.Cristina Becchio, Mauro Adenzato & Bruno G. Bara - 2006 - Consciousness and Cognition 15 (1):64-74.
    In this paper we present theoretical and experimental evidence for a set of mechanisms by which intention is understood. We propose that three basic aspects are involved in the understanding of intention. The first aspect to consider is intention recognition, i.e., the process by which we recognize other people’s intentions, distinguishing among different types. The second aspect concerns the attribution of intention to its author: the existence of shared neural representations provides a parsimonious explanation of how we recognize other people’s (...)

    Gene-Culture Coevolution Does Not Replace Standard Evolutionary Theory.Mauro Adenzato - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (1):146-146.
    Though the target article is not without fertile suggestions, at least two problems limit its overall validity: (1) the extended gene-culture coevolutionary framework is not an alternative to standard evolutionary theory; (2) the proposed model does not explain how much time is necessary for selective pressure to determine the stabilization of a new aspect of the genotype.

    Theory of Mind, Pragmatics and the Brain.Ivan Enrici, Bruno G. Bara & Mauro Adenzato - 2019 - Pragmatics and Cognition 26 (1):5-38.
    Theory of Mind is a neurocognitive system that allows the perceiver to attribute mental states, such as intentions, beliefs, or feelings, to others’ actions. The aim of the present work is to analyse the engagement of the ToM system in communication, in particular, in communicative intention processing. To this aim, we propose an Intention Processing Network with its own principles and mechanisms, that is, a brain network differentially engaged according to the complex intertwining of the context, goal, and action involved.

  4. eStroop: Implementation, Standardization, and Systematic Comparison of a New Voice-Key Version of the Traditional Stroop Task.Riccardo Brunetti, Allegra Indraccolo, Claudia Del Gatto, Benedetto Farina, Claudio Imperatori, Elena Fontana, Jacopo Penso, Rita B. Ardito & Mauro Adenzato - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    The Stroop effect is a well-documented phenomenon, demonstrating both interference and facilitation effects. Many versions of the Stroop task were created, according to the purposes of its applications, varying in numerous aspects. While many versions are developed to investigate the mechanisms of the effect itself, the Stroop effect is also considered a general measure of attention, inhibitory control, and executive functions. In this paper, we implement “eStroop”: a new digital version based on verbal responses, measuring the main processes involved in (...)
