comment Significant baseline, Oddball paradigm
@Mathilde - oh and by the way, of all the things I suggested, I would first try removing standards preceded by deviants. It's a much cleaner comparison that way in any case.

comment Significant baseline, Oddball paradigm
Hi @Mathilde, of course you can :) If you google me and the institute where I work (you can find my web page in my profile if you click on my name), you can also find my e-mail address and contact me directly if you prefer. But I do read this board regularly, so it's safe to ask further questions here as well.

comment Learned dyslexia? adult predicament from childhood teacher´s incompetence?
I really can't say, as I come from a country where dyslexia is not such a well known issue. I do however live with someone who is brilliant yet reads with considerably more difficulty than myself, and I can see how it can be hindering... yet it's clearly unrelated to intellectual ability.

comment Learned dyslexia? adult predicament from childhood teacher´s incompetence?
There are ways to deal with dyslexia if it's real (and it seems to be, though self-confidence can of course be a real issue as well): special fonts, careful spacing between letters, certain filters to put on top of the page... Maybe those are some avenues worth exploring?

@Tanner - just updated the second link, it now leads to a pdf which is on NYU's server.

Glad you like it :) And thanks for adding information about where to get the pdf. I hadn't realized that both my links are behind paywalls until now.

comment Which physical properties of a stimulus can a human attend to?
I recently came across a paper on higher-order statistical properties of waveform processing which seems relevant to your question. I'll look it up as soon as I find the time!

comment Why do humans' eyes enter an unfocused gaze when recalling a memory or imagining something?
It also happens when people are trying to solve a mental problem (like doing arithmetic in the head), not just when they're memorizing something. I've read that most people will look upwards and to the left when doing this, but I don't know about the neurophysiological reasons behind it.

comment Does initial 0-3 years of age have any effects for a permanent bonding to happen between the parents and their children?
I also thought about attachment styles when I read the question. However, I'm not so sure they apply here so well. An attachment style refers to a prototypical style of forming relationships with all significant people in one's life. If the brother is detached from everybody, then it makes sense to say it's an attachment issue. But if it's just the parents, I would guess it's probably not.
