comment What is a scientific description of the process of staring blankly into the distance?
Editing questions is a normal feature of the site. In particular first time users often have their question edited in order to make them clearer or more appropriate to the site. It sounds like you are talking more now about surprise rather than staring off into the distance or perhaps something else. I don't think it is clear. Could you clarify what you mean? Feel free to edit the title and content further.

comment What is a scientific description of the process of staring blankly into the distance?
You may need to be more explicit. Are you talking about the experience of thinking in your mind and applying minimal attention to visual input? Does the concept of "day-dreaming" capture what you are interested in?

Just to clarify: Why are you interested in perceived difficulty versus objective difficulty?

comment What kind of journal 'The Journal of Neuroscience Methods' is?
I think that discussing publication options related to where to publish in the cognitive sciences is, or should be, on topic for this site. That said, I imagine the question could be refined: asking "What kind of journal is ..." is a little tricky to answer.

I think the question could be interesting, but: (a) what are you defining as a mental challenge? (b) What is your outcome variable? e.g., what needs to change for a mental challenge to be worth while?

@ArnonWeinberg fair point. I've edited the first sentence to highlight your point.

comment Does creativity have a neurological basis independent of the art form used to express it?
Just to clarify, are you referring to creativity as something distinct from ability? For example, someone can be skilled at drawing, but not necessarily creative (in the sense of originality).
