comment Is Clare W. Graves a credible author?
I'd just like to note that the tagline on the linked Spiral Dynamics Integral page is "Spiral Dynamics Integral - The theory that explains everything", and they primarily seem to sell access to training and seminars. One man's "credible scientist" is another man's "quack".

comment What is the difference between biological and artificial neural networks?
The term is used differently in different fields. The brain is a (biological) neural network: it's a network of neurons. Artificial neural networks, usually just referred to as neural networks, are computer simulations which process information in a way similar to how we think the brain does it. I'll add some links here in the morning.

comment Manipulating cognitive load in online experiments
True. I think there's an art to framing your instructions in such a way that people are motivated to give their honest best effort, but knowing that doesn't really solve your problem.

comment does getting top marks and ranks in school or college make one intelligent?
"Intelligence" is a controversial word. You'll have to tell us what you mean when you use it before anyone can give you any kind of useful answer here, because it's been defined in countless different ways over the years.

comment Manipulating cognitive load in online experiments
Why do you think the example you mention wouldn't work? If you required them to type in the number after completing the task, and gave them feedback (right or wrong), it wouldn't differ from a lab situation, would it? Personally, we usually use de Neys and Schaeken's (2007) task, which I haven't seen run online, but I'll be programming it up and sharing it myself in the next fortnight, so I'll try and remember to link it here.

comment Can the neuronal firing rate be increased through medication/diet?
As far as I remember, it's the conductance velocity of neurons, not firing speed, which is important. I can't get the reference now, but look for something by Cooper, or McCrorie, or some combination of the two.

"Test", perhaps?

comment What is the extent of social grooming in humankind?
This is just my opinion, but I think you ought to cast your net a little wider. You could argue that the majority of human interactions, from eating dinner around a table, to competitive sports, communicating on online forums, etc., falls under the heading of "social grooming". Again, this is just an opinion.

comment List of experiments contradicting the expected utility model
Sorry, I was being lazy, and also amazingly sloppy; I meant EU (for Expected Utility). I see there might be a clash of terminology here between those of us from psychology and economics backgrounds: your 'positive theory' seems to be our 'descriptive model'. Also +1 on @ArtemKaznatcheev's point about how the question is phrased.
