comment Visual search: complexity of positive vs negative search tasks
I'd like to add that I don't think cogsci here should be used as an opportunity to entertain 'pet' theories about cognitive processing, so interesting as Artem's ideas are, perhaps the discussion should be more focused on the theory, as H.Muster is suggesting. Having read Artem's suggestions, they seem interesting, but it's clear he is sketchy on some parts of the literature. Artem, perhaps you should write a paper on this and submit it somewhere instead?

comment Does the fusiform face area in patients with Prosopagnosia (face blindness) show lower activity under an fMRI?
Josh, it was randomly selected so not meant to be indicative of anything in particular!

comment What's the name of this visual search task?
Great! Good call on adding the examples also. It's also worth noting that some studies have shown that not all features are equal. For example, colour is very good at guiding attention; shape less so. See: mendeley.com/research/…

comment Running on autopilot
See also cogsci.stackexchange.com/questions/732/… . I think you ask the question more clearly and accurately though!

comment Is learning to do a task automatically an example of intuition?
Can also be described in terms of automaticity : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automaticity

comment Software for online psychological experiments that don't require users to download anything
@Henrik : I am entirely aware of that stuff - hence my comment :) The user said "We also require reaction time measurements." I wanted them to be clear that they are in dangerous territory for that kind of thing.

comment Software for online psychological experiments that don't require users to download anything
General question to those who are providing helpful links: how good is the timing on these packages? I know some providers of experimental software still recommend XP as the best for experiments as it won't misbehave and make your experiment a low priority in terms of resources, thereby screwing up the timing.

comment How much red/orange is needed to stimulate hunger?
Interesting question - I think the problem with the link that you have provided is that it lacks any actual evidence or data. Can you provide links to anything that actually suggests red/orange can stimulate hunger? My assumption would be that this is a myth and piece of folklore from designers with little or no actual factual basis.

Can do - though would it be better as a comment on the original question? I added it as an answer given that there were several separate answers with different software.

comment Are there any cognitive test (or test suites) available on the iPad?
Agreed with Artem. It's very risky to do this until hardware such as that shown in the video linked to becomes widely available.
