(a.k.a. jonsca here)

Sir Charles Scott Sherrington is one of my science heroes, so I'm featuring him on my cogsci profile. He is often credited with coining the word "synapse."

I apologize that my activity on the site has been dwindling for a long time. Other commitments have pulled me away, but I still have a special place in my heart for CogSci. I am still keeping an eye on things, so behave yourselves.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a sociological/general systems phenomenon.

comment What makes us look into camera lens when we're being filmed?
@ChrisStronks This is okay. It's something that is an objective, testable phenomenon and may have answers in the literature. In general, just because a question asserts that something might be true doesn't make it a matter of opinion.
