(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.

@Sophy Linkifying the DOIs like I have done serves the same purpose and makes the post neater without having the raw URLs there.

comment The accuracy & malleability of memory for color
It was hard to tell that from the phrasing, but your first paragraph clarified all of that anyway. Feel free to add in additional information. We're not out to be draconian, the close reason is necessary to prevent a lot of "I have X, Y, Z symptoms, what's wrong with me?"-type questions, which this really wasn't at its core, anyway, but eliminating that ambiguity made it a stronger question.

comment The accuracy & malleability of memory for color
I have removed the final portion (which was my sticking point with the self-help aspect of the question) and voted to reopen. If you are concerned about how this neurological difference pertains to you, it's best to ask a clinician about it.
