The Wikipedia link has been deleted: cs.iastate.edu/~honavar/fahlman.pdf. Might get more people answering on CompSci cstheory.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/ne.neural-evol

@ChuckSherrington Ok, I didn't know it was this well researched and so I guess I was looking for the part of neuroscience that deals with music + emotion. I'll rephrase for that.

comment How is motivation influenced by chance of reward?
There's quite a lot of information on the subject in the book: How the Brain Works: amazon.com/Your-Brain-Work-Strategies-Distraction/dp/0061771295/… - which is largely based on academic research on dopamine and reward structures (or so the author states)

comment Do we understand the non-subjective mechanisms behind pleasure and pain?
Doesn't Pavlovian response cover this, and dopamine release from toward/away goals? Or are you thinking of something else?

comment Are spaced flashcards effective for learning?
I haven't seen the forgetting curve before but it matches the Supermemo algorithm almost exactly. Having read amazon.co.uk/Your-Memory-How-Works-Improve/dp/1569246297/… active recall seems to be quite a common theme/proven theory in learning.

Any thoughts on whether the SuperMemo algorithm has any evidence behind it, besides the author's own experience?
