Is there a Connection Between Self-Organized Criticality and Human Cognition?

Authors: Victor Christianto

This article is a summary of discussion in researchgate.net. In a rather old paper, Wagenmakers, Farrell and Ratcliff (2005) suggest that it is difficult to introduce Self-Organized Criticality and nonlinear dynamics to explain human behavior. They write: "the absence of a specific model for how self-organized criticality produces the observed behavior makes it very difficult to derive testable predictions. The authors conclude that the proposed paradigm shift is presently unwarranted."
