comment What is a good textbook for an undergrad Cognitive Neuroscience course?
Would it be useful to start a meta discussion about whether this site should allow questions about teaching psychology, cognitive science, etc., and how such questions should be formulated?

comment What is a good textbook for an undergrad Cognitive Neuroscience course?
@ArtemKaznatcheev I agree that the combination of cognitive-psychology and neurobiology covers nearly the same territory as cognitive-neuroscience, but my sense is that "cognitive neuroscience" is a widely used term in the field and that it means something more than the sum of cognitive psychology and neurobiology, so it warrants its own tag.

comment What is a good textbook for an undergrad Cognitive Neuroscience course?
Part of my motivation in asking this question was that I thought questions about teaching Cognitive Science could become an active topic for this site. Such questions would naturally be a little more open-ended than the typical SE question, but maybe we'd have multiple good answers (currently a rare occurrence). In any case, although it seems like there was some interest in my question (and perhaps there would be for other teaching questions), there doesn't seem to be much interest in answering it, so perhaps this is the wrong place for it.

JoshGitlin - Thanks for converting my question to a Community Wiki question, I should've asked it there in the first place. @ChuckSherrington - I thought this question would be ok to ask because there's been at least one question about textbooks before and I followed the suggestions from this meta discussion and tried to frame the question in a focused and constructive way.

You could try doing a forward search for articles that cite Eisenberger et al., 2003. Looks like there's over 1400!

comment Should always selecting the same response on the IOWA Gambling Test result in a good value?
I'm not sure I understand your question. The key aspect of the task is the relative values of the payoffs, not the absolute values. So (typically) the optimal strategy is to always choose the good deck, whether that gets you $4 or $40 or $4000 is an essentially arbitrary design decision. Depending on how you set up your study, you may want to use big numbers (make it more exciting?) or small numbers (actually pay participants their winnings?), the key piece is still the relative value of the "good" vs. "bad" decks.

comment What is a good beginner level book on neuroanatomy?
If you're just looking for an atlas of the human brain, I find Jurgen Mai's atlas extremely helpful.
