Resting state brain activity predicts individuals’ conformity
Several recent bibliometrics studies have reignited the well-known debates initiated more than twenty years ago by vivid works of Per Seglen (1992; 1994; 1997). The question is whether impact factor may represent not only the citedness of a journal as a whole, but also give some estimate of individual papers’ quality published in it (different views: Larivière et al., 2016; Zhang, Rousseau & Sivertsen, 2017; Waltman & Traag, 2017; Pudovkin, 2018). This is an important and profound theme of interrelation between a part and a whole, their mutual dependency and the limits of this dependency.
To explore this research question, we analyze correlation between the average (in our case, journal impact factor, IF) and the amplitude of oscillations/deviations around this average (citations received by individual papers in the journal). This is, so to say, “indicators of the second order”, we measure the digression of the citations received by individual papers from the journal’s average.

Abstract of 8th Forum of European Neurosciences. Barselona.
This chapter examines the neurophysiological plausibility of some of the claims of Construction Grammar with regard to syntactic structures. It suggests that evidence from neuroscience has highly important repercussions for linguistic theory building in general and argues that the constructionist enterprise receives considerable empirical support from neurolinguistic studies. The chapter examines views on the embodiment of grammar in neuronal circuitry and contends that neurological evidence indicates that it makes sense to postulate flexible constructional templates as distinct from lexical construction storage.
Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience. Conference Abstract: 41st European Brain and Behaviour Society Meeting
The paper discusses changes in the cognitive paradigm, characteristic of the last decades and driven by the development of brain science and neuroimaging methods. The course of the changes and their main sources are outlined, posing the question about the possible future research scope of cognitive psychology.
