    Documenting a Reduction in Signing Space in Nicaraguan Sign Language Using Depth and Motion Capture.Molly Flaherty, Asha Sato & Simon Kirby - 2023 - Cognitive Science 47 (4):e13277.
    In this paper, we use motion tracking technology to document the birth of a brand new language: Nicaraguan Sign Language. Languages are dynamic entities that undergo change and growth through use, transmission, and learning, but the earliest stages of this process are generally difficult to observe as most languages have been used and passed down for many generations. Here, we observe a rare case of language emergence: the earliest stages of the new sign language in Nicaragua. By comparing the signing (...)

    Past and future, human and nonhuman, semantic/procedural and episodic.James R. Hurford, Molly Flaherty & Giorgis Argyropoulos - 2007 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (3):324-325.
    The overlap of representations of past and future is not a completely new idea. Suddendorf & Corballis (S&C) usefully discuss the problems of testing the existence of such representations. Our taxonomy of memory differs from theirs, emphasizing the late evolutionary emergence of notions of time in memory.
