Fantastic, thanks! The system works!

comment In what ways can neurons fire randomly?
Not an answer, but this paper from Wolpert's group in Cambridge speaks to some of these issues.

comment Does being read to improve reading speed?
Most people [citation needed] can read much faster than they can speak. Unless we're talking about incredibly slow reading, I would imaging that being read to would end up being quite a bit slower.

comment Gender differences in IQ among undergraduate psychology students
Just to reiterate, my interest in this isn't from a psychometric perspective - I really don't care if there does turn out to be some tiny gender difference in average IQ - but from an experimentalist perspective: I want to know if there are systematic variations in cognitive ability (and therefore reasoning ability) in the population on which I run all of my experiments.

comment Gender differences in IQ among undergraduate psychology students
My question wasn't about gender differences in $g$ in the population - I've a little bit of familiarity with that literature, enough to know that I don't want to know any more about it - but about possible selection biases which lead to gender differences within this extremely well studied population. The thesis you refer to at the end touches on the topic, but I haven't seen anyone run the analysis that would explicitly answer my question: collate IQ measures from thousands of undergraduates, and compare any gender effects there to any found in the population norming sample for those tests.

comment Gender differences in IQ among undergraduate psychology students
Agreed. There's a lot of interesting information here, and I've upvoted, but it doesn't answer my question about about psychology students - specifically, do the men who chose to study psychology tend to have higher IQs than the women who chose to do so, due to some kind of selection effect.

Also, in the comment above, I meant Annual Review of Psychology, although I'll be checking BBR too.

More practically, I have a line in a draft paper which currently says "A full discussion of this class of models is beyond the scope of the current review (see XXXX), but [...] " and I want to fill in the Xs.

comment Does a recent general review of recurrent neural networks exist?
Unfortunately, the broad answer is the one I'm looking for - I have plenty of papers on applications of these models to specific problem domains, but I'm looking for something I can point to as a more general introduction. I'm looking through Behavioural Brain Research right now, as they do publish papers with this kind of broad scope.

comment How did the concepts of left and right direction develop in the human mind?
I take it you want to know why we use these particular words in English (where "right" also means "correct")? In which case, your question probably belongs on english.stackexchange.com, where, in fact, it's discussed well here, here, and here

comment What are the most used statistical methods in WM research besides (generalized) linear modeling?
To reiterate @Chris' comment, the choice of analysis is completely dependant on the design of the experiment, and what the DV is, not the domain being studied. If you're looking at a continuous DV between groups, you use t tests/ANOVA (paired or unpaired), if you're looking at binary outcomes, you use logistic regression, and if you're looking at complex, nested, or unbalanced designs, you use mixed models. You'll really need to specify what kind of experiment you're thinking about, and consider posting on CrossValidated
