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.

comment How does the physical brain know about qualia?
@ArnonWeinberg this question is perfectly fine here. Philosophy of mind is a part of the cognitive sciences and we are not restricted to empirical questions. In fact, drawing a clear line separating 'science' from 'philosophy' is often a fool's errand.

To which ear do you hold your phone? Or is that a test of handedness?

comment What are the highest ranked neuroscience journals that use double-blind review process?
I don't know the particulars of your case, but it is usually a big red flag when someone thinks that their work deserves a top journal but do not know the top journals of the field in which the work is in. That usually signals a certain amount of disengagement with the literature, my personal advice on how to proceed would be here. However, I think your question is a fine fit for this site and I hope you get some useful answers.

comment Why is it that only humans commit suicide?
@NeMo when you cross-post, you should include a link to the previous version. You should also try to tailor questions more to the audiences of the sites or what you learned from your previous posting instead of just copying your question verbatim.

comment Why is it that only humans commit suicide?
@NeMo it is your job to demonstrate your initial research in the question, by for instance referencing the paper you linked. Especially when your question is based on a premise like "no animals other than humans commit suicide without the intention to help their kin".

comment Have any drugs been shown to increase the neuroplasticity of adult brains?
Why are you equating the propensity "to connect and myelinated more easily" to learning? If you focus on just myelination and connecting more easily and drop "learning" (in which case I would remove the learning and cognitive-neuroscience tags, too) then I think you will have a good and precise question that doesn't assume too much.

@AliceD the second result for me when looking up .nii is this MatWorks page which certainly makes it seem like it is a tool used by neuroscience, so I am inclined to agree with Jeromy. However, I hope the OP can expand their question more. In particular, I fear this question is too specific and not a general enough problem that others will encounter.
