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.

@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).

comment Do the deaf read faster?
You might want to have a look at: Bélanger, N. N., Slattery, T. J., Mayberry, R. I., & Rayner, K. (2012). Skilled deaf readers have an enhanced perceptual span in reading. Psychological Science, 23(7), 816-823.

comment In NEURON simulator, what is the command for “Init & Run” button?
There's been some discussion in the context of coding here. In general, I think questions that are about software that relate specifically to cognitive science are on topic. I imagine because this software is about neurons that makes it somewhat on topic. That said, there are limits to this which could be discussed on meta.

comment How to interpret intelligence test scores for an individual who has taken a test multiple times in quick succession?
People may not concentrate for transient reasons that presumably could be readily fixed. So no. Low scores for lack of attention suggest a problem with test administration and don't really reflect an individual's latent intelligence. I'm not referring to deeper issues with attentional processes that we might associate with neurocognitive disorders.

To evaluate practice effects, you'd want to examine changes in performance for a large number of individuals. When looking at an individual case, it may be difficult to tease out practice effects from random variation.
