comment Why do people walk in a circle when they are blindfolded and intend to walk in a straight line?
@WaqarAhmad I do not see anything wrong with my answer. I have updated it to include a robot example.

comment Is “Biophysics of Computation” still a good book?
I recommend Theoretical neuroscience by Abbott and Dayan. amzn.to/18j8Teh

comment Are we to a point in research that we can correlate measurable phenomena with brain changes?
The question is improved. Yes, there are numerous animal studies that show stimulus induced plasticity often with changes in behavior. The question is still broad for me to answer specifically, though. IMHO, neuroscience have not yet achieved understanding at the level applicable to complex cognitive and personality level. Most of these tasks are very elementary perceptual/decision-making related, and I wouldn't draw any conclusions from them for therapy.

What do you mean exactly by the "efficacy of LTP"? Also, why are you only focusing on potentiation and not depression (in general plasticity)? Are you planning to specifically measure LTP? In early sensory areas where you can reliably evoke action potentials with stimuli perhaps it is possible to say it is causal, but in higher order areas causal relationships of this sort is not clear. LTP in which area on what kind of task are you talking about? All LTPs in the brain??? (also there's a typo in the title)

You mean electrophysiologically? Can you clarify?

comment Is it possible to think in a second language?
I learned both of them before the age of 5. Korean first, then started English after 2 years.

comment Is it possible to think in a second language?
Anecdotal: I speak two languages fluently, Korean and English, and I can think in either language. They give me very different style of thinking abilities. I prefer thinking in English, because I become more logical (it is my second-ish language).

comment Why do we use 3 channel R,G,B to represent color?
there are other color representation spaces too, e.g., L*a*b en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lab_color_space

comment When did neurotransmitters derived from monoamines first appear in evolutionary history?
This might be more appropriate for biology.SE.
