comment How effective are high audio frequencies in commercials in getting audience attention?
As an anecdote, a friend of mine in Film & Video production once used the Emergency Alery System's (turn down your speakers) SAME header in a car commercial. Audiences despised it but the executives of the car company loved it, said it was one of their most successful ad campaigns...

comment What kinds of math to learn for understanding dynamic systems in cognitive science?
Tyler, you have posted this question on seven different Stack Exchange sites: here, Linguistics, Computational Science, Mathematics, Computer Science, CS Theory, and Philosophy. Cross posting once is frowned upon, let alone six times! Which site do you want this question on?

comment How is it that taking a break from a problem sometimes allows you to figure out the answer?
Typically tags on a Stack Exchange site relate to topics for which there are a lot of questions on that site, or topics which users would want to follow. That's sortof what I meant above... but tags are not my strongest area as a mod, and we have some users who are very adept at taxonomy. Please feel free to ask on Meta if those tags should be added Daniel!

comment What is a good beginner level book on neuroanatomy?
@FranciscoD unfortunately, this question is outside the scope of our site. Stack Exchange sites focus on objective questions 8witha single correct answer*. Recommendations for books are off topic. However, our chat system is a good place to get book recommendations, would you like me to create a chat room for you to request recommendations for neuroanatomy books?

I've given you an upvote Daniel -- thank you for the thorough answer! I don't believe that incubation is a large enough concept to warrant it's own tag, and we don't have an insight or a creativity tag used anywhere else, so I'm not sure we need to create those...

comment What explains habitual or even occasional incidences of self-talk?
Also, do they do it consciously and intentionally, or not? For example, if I am alone and bored or working and bored, I often mutter to myself. But I do it to amuse myself, I don't actually think I'm two different people.

comment Does the fusiform face area in patients with Prosopagnosia (face blindness) show lower activity under an fMRI?
I'm not really loving the brain-injury tag @BenBrocka... I guess it fits given that the tag covers congenital disorders, but it doesn't feel right to me...
