comment Why do humans cry?
Welcome to CogSci! We expect scientific answers here. Try to look for the study which mentions 'leucine enkephalin' perhaps? If this answer remains unedited, over time it will be deleted as it will keep gathering down votes otherwise. Of course you can also delete it yourself.

Welcome to CogSci! We expect scientific answers here, so an offhand reference to 'some study' is insufficient. Try to look for the study perhaps? If this answer remains unedited, over time it will be deleted as it will keep gathering down votes otherwise. Of course you can also delete it yourself.

comment Is spiritual enlightenment a valid way attempting to understand the universe and consciousness
Final comment, this seems a bit off-topic though (read the scope of the site), so not all too certain any newly posted questions would be well received.

comment Is spiritual enlightenment a valid way attempting to understand the universe and consciousness
One possible way is to refine the original question (you can do suggested edits, but preferably @tristo can do that), after which you update your answer. Alternatively, follow-up questions can be posted as new questions (you can do that as well, and answer them yourself!).

comment Is spiritual enlightenment a valid way attempting to understand the universe and consciousness
Welcome chasly! Start by taking a look at what exactly a Q&A site is by referring to the help section, to understand how it is different from forums. The format is one question, and each posted answer needs to be able to stand on its own and answer the full posted original (or updated) question. The main problem here is the original question was too broad, and the Q&A format is ill-equipped to handle with that.

comment What are the psychological differences in camelCase and underscore_case programming conventions?
P.s. I never claimed to have a scientific answer. But at the time of writing, it was the only blog post on the topic taking published research into consideration, hence the claim "I will try to take you through a semi-scientific explanation".

comment What are the psychological differences in camelCase and underscore_case programming conventions?
Funny to run into this post of mine on CogSci. :) Did you read the referenced article in the post and the follow-up study I wrote after? At the time of writing that was all I could find, so I wouldn't say 'a surprising amount', but there definitely are a few relevant papers out there, most notably those I blogged about last time I checked.

comment Are there any open task sets available to assess workload using secondary task measures?
If not I can still just export the particular tasks I suppose, possibly manually (if that would be allowed).

comment Are there any open task sets available to assess workload using secondary task measures?
Would I be able to easily run Inquisit side-by-side with the primary task, just to trigger the secondary tasks? I would prefer having control over how to show the tasks for minimal intrusion into the actual work environment of the user. Same question for E-prime.

Welcome to CogSci Andy! That would great! To improve this answer, would you mind adding a short synopsis of your recent publication?
