comment Can an individual having strong identity associations with groups be used to infer anything about them?
thanks! It is great to see people investing in their questions. I hope someone knowledgeable on this topic comes across the question soon and helps you answer it!

Yeah, after reading your question, I gathered you were not interested in a specific group. I am just suggesting that some people might not get that at first (I didn't get it until a careful reading of the question, for instance). Also, phrasing the converse might give you more search terms, but you probably tried those already.

comment What is the role of traveling waves in circuit formation during cortical development?
My answer on how spiking begins in the fetus might be relevant. I am not knowledgeable enough to adapt it to an answer to this question, though.

comment How does neural spiking begin in the fetus?
Thank you @ChuckSherrington I was on a voting spree last night and came across this question again. Hopefully the answer is still useful to OP. I am not sure if I completely answer the question, though.

@JoshGitlin if you have a specific question about a specific part of a paper maybe you should ask it as a whole new question :D

I think this question is confusing, because a tempting answer would be "if a person strongly identifies with group A, then they are more likely to have typical traits of people from group A". However, that is not what you want to ask. A potential solution is to ask the flip question: "What can be said about individuals who do not have strong group associations?" I feel that this might make your question more clear (at least to me) and the answer to it might still be enlightening/of interest to you.

comment How are newly created neurons recruited into existing networks?
I don't understand your first point. You start with "it is random in the local region" but end with "the general connection statistics of a newborn neuron will ultimately be similar to a neighboring neuron"? Which is it? Random connections and preferential attachment tend to produce very different network structures. I also agree with @ChuckSherrington and would prefer if you included some references for people like me that are not familiar with neuroscience.
