  1. Rubin, DC (2018). What psychology and cognitive neuroscience know about the communicative function of memory.. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 41, e30. [doi]
    (last updated on 2019/04/18)

    Mahr & Csibra (M&C) include interesting ideas about the nature of memory from outside of the field of cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience. However, the target article's inaccurate claims about those fields limit its usefulness. I briefly review the most serious omissions and distortions of the literature by the target article, including its misrepresentation of event memory, and offer suggestions for forwarding the goal of understanding the communicative function of memory.
