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

comment What is the evolutionary purpose of envy?
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.

comment Definition of or research on fun
@Krysta if you have extra criteria for answers, like demanding that they be empirical (since, as we've discussed before, this is not an inherent criteria for CogSci) then you should make that explicit in your question out of respect for the time of people who write the answers.

comment How to integrate word prediction keyboard into P300-based BCI (brain computer interface) system?
Thank you for the question. Please try to avoid creating redundant tags. For example, on this question you created both the tag brain-computer-interface and bci, and on a previous question you introduced both error-related-negativity and ern; you should avoid creating multiple tags that mean the same things, and try to use existing tags as much as possible. I've fixed them on both this and the previous question. Also, although this question is on-topic here, it might get better response at UX.SE.
