comment How to run “inhibition of return” experiments online?
Thank you for answering. I have to see whether or not I am able to modify the template. I have seen the OpenSesame Mobile (Beta) app and run it. I wish I could run my experiment online.

comment How to run “inhibition of return” experiments online?
Thank you. I am trying now to understand how it works and hopefully I could make something on my own as I need more than cued/uncued times. 'Given how simple the experiment is' is not how I think about this. :)

comment Affective Neuroscience Personality Scales
Thanks, I am aware of this paper but I wanted to see what ANPS is about since BANPS is based on it. I am in fact using the BANPS.

comment Descriptive models of different types of consciousness
Thank you again. I found Stanislav Deheane's 'The Global Neuronal Workspace Model of Conscious Access: From Neuronal Architectures to Clinical Applications' here: cs.helsinki.fi/u/ahyvarin/teaching/niseminar4/…

comment Descriptive models of different types of consciousness
Thank you for the elaborate answer. I wonder whether there is a theoretical framework that would account for 1st, 2nd and 3rd person perspectives.

comment What, if anything, sets humans apart from other species?
Right, it is about consciousness. I think that self-awareness is what could make the humans different. This could count for language and simulation of the future, you spoke about.

The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness (fcmconference.org/img/CambridgeDeclarationOnConsciousness.pdf) says that what non-human animals possess the neural substrates for consciousness. What we might have 'extra' is self-awareness. That made us the storytellers. "Until animals have their own storytellers, humans will always have the most glorious part of the story, and with this proverbial concept in mind, the symposium will address the notion that humans do not alone possess the neurological faculties that constitute consciousness as it is presently understood." (fcmconference.org/)

comment What, if anything, sets humans apart from other species?
Not that I don't agree with you, but for the sake of argument, since you love it, "there is no known human language that cannot be translated into a another" implies that there is someone who knows both languages. Let's say that there is a language X that nobody knows. Before someone picks it up we are in the same position as in the case of animal communication. Language might be base on motivation, drives, and affects (primary processes). Now the dog's basic motivations or affects may build up different sets of principles to which we might not have access.

comment What, if anything, sets humans apart from other species?
Whenever I come across the language argument I cannot help thinking of Wittgenstein's "if a lion could speak, we could not understand him." (Wittgenstein, L., & Cumming, M. (1958). Philosophical investigations (Vol. 255). Oxford: Blackwell.p.223) I live in a place where there are 29 official languages. I somehow manage to understand two of them. Since the other 27 are not available to me could I think that they do not have the capacity for language? The dog barks, maybe saying something to me, but I have the same understanding as in the case of those 27 languages, namely none. I just wonder.
