Studying neuroscience at the Hebrew University.

My main interest is how the cognitive system combines prior knowledge about the world in the process of perception.

comment Do people estimate combined probabilities differently to uncombined ones?
Welcome to CogSci. This sounds like an interesting question, but after the example in the last paragraph, I'm not sure I understand what you mean by cumulative and non cumulative. The term cumulative as I know it refers to questions like "what is the probability of at least 4 heads in tosses", while non cumulative would be "what is the probability of exactly 4 heads in 6 tosses". Is that what you mean? If not, can you be more specific and define what you mean by the term?

comment Math or Physics: Which is the more relevant background to enter Cognitive Sciences and Psychology?
+1. In physics, most experiments are so reliably reproducible, that you rarely encounter the need for solid knowledge of statistics. At least for me, this was a weak point for some time after moving to cognitive science...

comment Is there a variance in acceptance of conspiracy theories by occupation?
The article you link to is actually a book review about this book: amazon.com/… . From the review it sounds like an interesting book, but doesn't answer your question.

comment Why is training better when following an easy-to-difficult schedule?
The thing that makes most gradient descent algorithms learn faster at the beginning is simply the larger learning rate parameter, forced onto the algorithm, and not the difficulty of examples.
