comment Is quantum tunneling required for nerve signals to cross the dendritic synaptic barrier?
What is the context? I think that person might be crazy, but I would need to know the context to be sure.

comment Does transparency have its own visual channel?
'low-level processing' is not a well defined term. Do you mean in V1 (primary visual cortex)? I think transparency is a higher-order feature that requires (object) boundary detection. I doubt you can see a big effect of it in the early visual processing where color and orientation are processed.

comment What is the estimated cost of validating a psychometric test?
what's "io" and "ie"? I'd edit your english, but I'm not sure what you mean.

comment What kinds of information can (and cannot) be extracted from connectome?
Ideally connectome will contain the information 1,2,3. However, depending on the technique (e.g. electron microscopy on slices) it may not get them. I think it would be more clear if you dissociate the technique from the goal of connectomics itself.

@NewAlexandria You are right. Perhaps my reaction was too harsh...

Surprised that nobody mentioned Hopfield network.

comment What delay between two audio sources is seen as “noticeable” to most people?
probably in the order of microseconds...exactly because of source localization.

how are you defining "accuracy"?

comment References for biologically plausible models of knowledge representation?
I must say the VSA (vector symbolic architecture) and it's neural implementation doesn't strike me as being biologically plausible. I guess it is relatively more plausible than what the authors are comparing to in some sense.

Some parts of your post is very fishy and highly likely pseudoscience. That omega432.com is full of nonsense.
