    The relational correspondence between category exemplars and names.Kimberly A. Jameson & Nancy Alvarado - 2003 - Philosophical Psychology 16 (1):25 – 49.
    While recognizing the theoretical importance of context, current research has treated naming as though semantic meaning were invariant and the same mapping of category exemplars and names should exist across experimental contexts. An assumed symmetry or bidirectionality in naming behavior has been implicit in the interchangeable use of tasks that ask subjects to match names to stimuli and tasks that ask subjects to match stimuli to names. Examples from the literature are discussed together with several studies of color naming and (...)

    Semantic and Perceptual Representations of Color: Evidence of a Shared Color-Naming Function.Bilge Sayim, Kimberly A. Jameson, Nancy Alvarado & Monika Szeszel - 2005 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 5 (3-4):427-486.
    Much research on color representation and categorization has assumed that relations among color terms can be proxies for relations among color percepts. We test this assumption by comparing the mapping of color words with color appearances among different observer groups performing cognitive tasks: an invariance of naming task; and triad similarity judgments of color term and color appearance stimuli within and across color categories. Observer subgroups were defined by perceptual phenotype and photopigment opsin genotype analyses. Results suggest that individuals rely (...)

    Pain facial expression: Individual variability undermines the specific adaptationist account.Christine R. Harris & Nancy Alvarado - 2002 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (4):461-462.
    The proposal that there are specific adaptations for the expression and detection of pain appears premature on both conceptual and empirical grounds. We discuss criteria for the validation of a pain facial expression. We also describe recent findings from our lab on coping styles and pain expression, which illustrate the importance of considering individual differences when proposing evolutionary explanations.
