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 What is the threshold where actions are perceived as “instant”?
There is a difference between the question "what is the smallest time interval between 2 stimuli we can discriminate" and "what is the smallest time interval between action and response that we can discriminate". If we perform an action that is expected to have an immediate response, we are much more likely to perceive the response as immediate. We don't have such predisposition for 2 stimuli. So I would assume we perceive as instantaneous much larger time delay for action-response than the time interval needed to tell 2 arbitrary stimuli apart.

comment What psychophysical research published its data?
Thanks. Its a nice resource, although really not what I am looking for - they provide only an aggregate of the number of times (or probability) each subject responded in each possible way, in each condition. The main feature I'm looking for is the full sequence of trials and responses.

psycnet.apa.org/journals/bul/47/3/193 might be a relevant reference.

comment What is a source of case studies of personality disorders?
This seems like a totally legit question to me. An analogous question from stackoverflow stackoverflow.com/questions/2301555 - Where can I learn algorithms and data structures from? I learned a lot from other people's answers there.

And, I think cogsci community has a good chance of creating such a resource...
