comment Which political system stimulates individuals the most to strive for the greater good?
If I could cast a non-binding vote then I would vote that this question is too broad. The whole fields of moral and political philosophy have struggled with this question for over 2 millennia; how do you define "the greater good", how do you define "political system", are all highly non-trivial questions. However, some variant of this question would be very interesting, if you were a bit more precise on your parameters.

@Emile over on Reddit, /r/scholar can be a good place to request papers, but you didn't hear that from me ;).

You might be interested in this post and this discussion of inequality aversion (and links therein) that discuss this from an evolutionary game theory perspective.

comment What causes Capgras (“imposter”) Syndrome?
Awesome! Thanks for this self-answer. You might want to include a "to not be confused with imposter syndrome: cogsci.stackexchange.com/q/8973/29"; and the link to the question that originally generated this, in case others make the same error as you did originally.

comment How is the biological accuracy of ANNs typically measured?
I like this question a lot. There seems to be a deeper underlying question of how is the accuracy (or the usefulness) of any mathematical (or computational) model to be measured? For that question, it might be important to notice that there are different types of models with different goals, so a single answer might not exist; that might still be true even if restricted to ANNs.

comment Evidence that positive rewards are learnt faster than negative rewards?
@what what is the obvious statement that doesn't need to be shown? That beating children is a less effective at getting them to learn than smiling at them? Seems like a non-obvious statement to me, especially given the history of education. I've definitely heard the sentiment you're expressed before, and it does seem to be a central part of modern perspectives in education, at least in the west. But dismissing zergylord with a story or apples-and-oranges is not conducive to learning, nor is his caution unwarranted given how notorious educational-psych is for not doing well controlled studies.
