comment I am trying to flip .nii images using pm_flip but it isn't working
If it's about software specifically related to cognitive sciences then I'm inclined to see it as appropriate for this site. i.e., if the question was how do you flip an image that just happens to be of a brain, then perhaps it would belong on a different site; but if it is about how you use specific software for working with brain images, then I think it's appropriate for this site.

comment Does knowledge of tests like Iowa Gambling and Wisconsin Card-Sorting task enable a person to fake the test?
Why do you want to do a test on neuroscience students? What is your broader goal?

@anon As Christian pointed out, we don't answer self-help questions that apply to one person's specific circumstances on this site. I gave your question an edit to try to frame it as a general question that might be suitable to the site and still be relevant to you. But others may feel that it is not general enough.

Interesting question. In your context, (a) what construct are you aiming to measure? and (b) in what way are participants motivated to fake? (i.e., do they want to appear to have more functioning or less functioning?)

@Zelda I have given the question an edit. This is a starting point for an acceptable question. You should further edit the question to make it a stand-alone question. I.e., (a) give a basic summary of the study as relevant to your question and (b) clearly define your question about the study.

Thanks for coming back to this question. To clarify, I didn't mean to imply in the question that item information was not available anywhere. I guess the question is referring to the general situation where there probably are previous uses of the measure in the literature, and there might be a key article that describes the measure somewhere. I guess I'm thinking of a good general strategy for securing relevant information and then using it to form an understanding of the scale properties.
