comment Empirical proof for social network models
You might be interested in this blog post where I discuss some of the discrepencies between what social network data looks like and how it is used in (evolutionary game theory) models.

comment Which paper or book from cognitive science do you think everyone should read or know about, and why?
I think this question would be better if we listed one book/paper per answer, not three. And provided an explanation of why that is a good choice. Since I've made this CW, you can always feel free to provide more than one answer. Of course, the community can still vote to close this question, if they think it is too broad like @StevenJeuris suggests.

comment Is there a neural network model of Pavlovian Learning?
You might be interested in this question on refinements of the Rascorla-Wagner model of classical conditioning, which I hear is provided by temporal difference learning. TD-learning has various implementations in neuro, and those would also be implementations of Pavlovian learning then.

comment PTSD based on false memories
The term "secondary PTSD" is useful, and a nice way to get into the literature. So I appreciate this comment. It seems that it is not limited to counsellors.

comment Moral Foundations Theory and trigger word combinations
I also think you ask a very focused question when you write: "has there been any work done on looking at combinations of these trigger words from different categories [for the same query]?". You should emphasize this and de-emphasize the three "questions" lower down. Those are more examples of what you might expect such further work to look like.

comment Moral Foundations Theory and trigger word combinations
This is a great question, very focused, detailed and educational. Well done, Alex. I am not sure if @SydneyMaples is talking about a previous draft, but this question seems completely on topic for me. The moral foundation theory is a pretty popular topic in social psychology, so there are many more researchers than just Haidt looking at it. My only advice is that people are probably dissuaded by the length, it might be better to move the first paragraph after the main question into a "Background" section; or at least add some section headings.

comment Is it possible to master two different typing keyboard layouts?
@AliceD interference and context is definitely a thing, so I am not sure where your assessment is coming from. For example, imagine a person that is bilingual in a pair of languages that have different scrips. I would expect them to have an easier time learning the two different keyboard layouts corresponding to the two languages because of context than a monolingual person learning two different keyboard layouts for the same script.
