comment What are current neuronal explanations and models of 'consciousness'?
I think the scholarpedia article on models of consciousness is a very good source for this question.

This is an awesome answer! I added some formatting and links to make it a bit quicker to read. If that is an issue, feel free to roll-back my edits.

comment Visual search: complexity of positive vs negative search tasks
The only 'self-theorizing' is that "not" is not an essential property. But if you think the answer is incorrect, or does not answer the question, then I welcome the downvote. I personally think @H.Muster gave a better answer to this question, and I am not 100% sure why OP accepted my answer, apart from maybe the reference to Treisman that completely answers his specific question.

comment Visual search: complexity of positive vs negative search tasks
@vizzero thanks for the suggestion, but the goal of my answer was to point out that there is a distinction between parallel and sequential processing of information in search tasks (as was pointed out by Treisman in 1985). If you follow the references forward, you can find further examples. The testing section is just a long-hand way of explaining how constant-factor equivalence (and basic asymptotic analysis) works, and how you could start to check parallel-vs-serial in an experiment. Note that this is a pretty standard way to do these tests.

comment Is this optical illusion the visual equivalent of binaural beats?
@BenBrocka I don't think the OP meant 'similar' as in 'using the same neural mechanism' but as 'producing similar qualia in a different domain (i.e. visual instead of auditory).

comment For depression diagnoses, does one make a clear distinction between endogenous and exogenous causes of depression?
the two are often coupled. Also, you make more than endogenous and exogenous in your distinction. Your first is about the brain, your second is about the mind (well, even further: mind in social context). I would try to make the scope be of the same field. I.e. at least adjust your endogenous reasons to mind-centered/psychological ones and do not try to talk about the brain directly. Especially when you are asking about psychiatry (also, good tag to add to this question).

comment Does the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis apply to artificial (specifically programming) languages?
@ChuckSherrington if this was a question about programming languages wouldn't that relate to io-psych? Since organizations would be interested in optimizing what tools they give their programmers? We can discuss this in detail in chat. As is, I think the question is fine with the linguistics and maybe language tag. Here are 1, 2, 3 related questions; we could steal some tags from them. I recommend philosophy-of-mind.

comment Does the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis apply to artificial (specifically programming) languages?
NLP as in Natural Language Processing is also not an appropriate tag for this question. If by 'artificial languages' the OP means 'programming languages' and how they effect how we design/implement/reason-about algorithms, then he should write programming languages, and the io-psych tag would be relevant. But usually 'artificial languages' means languages that are created artificially for normal conversation (say Klingon, or Esperanto). Which do you mean @Roly?
