comment Can an individual having strong identity associations with groups be used to infer anything about them?
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.

Could you include more specific reference for support of the somatic marker hypothesis?

comment How to get rid of subvocalization?
I agree with H.Muster and @zergylord, I think it would be great if you could include some reference to take this answer beyond anecdotal if you can.

comment Is there a reduction of “Brain Fog” with fewer hours of sleep?
You might be interested in looking around at the research on sleep inertia. This might be the term you are looking for, and then the relevant theories will be based on which stage of sleep you wake up in.

comment Neural networks with biologically plausible accounts of neurogenesis
@MattMunson thanks for your answer. I was actually organizing an online reading group on neurogenesis with some colleagues so that we could start seriously thinking about some of these questions. Unfortunately everything got delayed because there were a few other projects ahead in the queue. If you are interested in the reading group then send me an email.
