comment Is there a limit to how many skills a person can master?
I see. Good point. Obviously one can forget skills, like how to play the piano. The speaking skill was given as an example of a skill you acquire without an effort. But the 'some' serves as a guard there; obviously skills can 'diminish'.

I'm not sure I can link your comment to a particular part of the answer.

comment Does transparency have its own visual channel?
That's a great answer, I only wish it would address the question more directly. The answer offers support to the idea that transparency is a higher-level operation, thus cannot have its own channel.

comment Does transparency have its own visual channel?
That is exactly my thinking, I doubt it is decoded in V1. You could also argue that transparency requires some higher level comparisons, as it involves both colour comparison, and some form of mental subtraction - you can attribute a single colour to two different objects. It kind of follow that you cannot attribute to it the term 'channel' - it's higher level.

comment Sensory dissonance: Will the visual or auditory channel win?
This is a fantastic answer. I just don't think the McGurk effect serves a proof for dominance - the effect demonstrates the interaction between the two channels, resulting in either fusion or combination; but not dominance.

comment If time travel were possible, would travelling back in time result in memory loss?
There are plenty of discussion on this on the physics forum. I reckon the question should move there.

comment Does correcting responses after feedback lead to better learning?
With this I agree. Although I find the question somewhat incomplete - what is the overall goal and context of the experiment? And example question and answers would also help. It would be beneficial if the OP extend the question to answer these in order to receive more relevant answers.

comment Does correcting responses after feedback lead to better learning?
@what - if I understand you correctly, your comment seems to suggest that operant conditioning has no place here due to the complexity of the problem and the simplicity of the feedback. However, while subjects may not understand the reason, subjects shall still be able to learn the link between the stimuli and response. For instance, any 4 year old should be able to learn that a statement such as "The speed of sound is proportional to the density, elasticity and temperature of the medium" is right, even if one has no notion of what the vocabulary actually mean.
