comment Is there evidence that listening to music can aid/hinder concentration or performance?
And another Science Alert article: The best music to listen to for optimal productivity, according to science.

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.

comment How valid are reaction times collected from online studies?
Welcome to CogSci Andy! That would great! To improve this answer, would you mind adding a short synopsis of your recent publication?

comment Spreading Activation Theory
There is no harm in asking two separate questions. Perhaps you should split this question into two? (You can always edit this one, and pose a new one.)

@AliceD I considered that as well. It is one of those 'not fully a dupe', but the answer of the duplicate question most likely does answer the OP's question. If not, the OP is free to update his question taking this new information into account to disambiguate more clearly after which it can be reopened.

@JeromyAnglim Have these edits addressed the issue raised by Artem? If so, I believe this comment thread can be removed.

comment Comparison between IO psychology, Arbeitspsychologie and Psychologie du travail et des organisations
Could you provide some background information on how you came into contact with these theories? What do you already know/where does the confusion stem from?

comment How to know whether a methodological technique is quantitative or qualitative?
Good question, except that comparing assessment tools (e.g. NASA TLX) to statistical methods (e.g. ANOVA) is comparing apples to oranges. I suppose the real question is whether quantifying subjective data through scales should be considered qualitative or quantitative data.

I'm still wondering whether NASA TLX can be considered a 'continuous scale'. Not arguing that it generally is considered to be ...

comment Does daily software development enhance the cognitive capacity of a person?
@AbelMelquiadesCallejo I still believe it is too broad. I believe it would help if you'd refine 'cognitive capacity', as Krysta pointed out earlier.

comment Should psychological checks be as frequent as physical checks to evaluate a patient's condition?
A warm welcome from me as well! However, introducing your bio here in the comments to motivate your answer does nothing but causing confusion (and smells a bit like misuse of appeal to authority). The OP agreed that the linked to question is a duplicate, so let's stick with that. If you are interested in sharing your expertise there is nothing preventing you from posting (and answering!) your own question in a new post, the way you interpreted it! Hope to see you around.
