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."

comment How to read a neuron tuning curve graph?
@blz I have turned the comments into an answer. It may not be exactly what the OP is looking for, since he wants to compose his own answer. I wouldn't worry to much about the percent of unanswered questions, to be honest. It's much better to have a steady population of users contributing good content than to have all of the questions answered. This is science after all, we don't have all the answers!

comment OCD Motivation and Dopamine Motivation, is there a connection?
@jona I feel the same way, but I think that there's enough of a basis for further study if the OP wants to pursue it at a research level. I think it certainly addresses the question well. I would love it (could be a bounty in it for ya!) if you would elaborate on the current work in the field.

comment What do brains do when processing information, that Von Neumann machines cannot (yet?) imitate?
@blz I took the liberty of tossing in the references but feel free to reformat as you see fit.

comment Is quantum tunneling required for nerve signals to cross the dendritic synaptic barrier?
Ummmmmmm, what? Beware of someone saying all classical models of the brain are false because they are usually a kook.
