comment Is the Raspberry Pi capable of operating as a stimulus presentation system for experiments?
Interesting idea. What kinds of experiments were you planning on running with it? I wonder whether you'll get a better answer here or on raspberrypi.stackexchange.com

comment Quantify degree to which non-diagnostic features bias category-present response
(b) Given that participants do not know the true probabilities apriori nor whether they are stable over time, how does Bayesian updating of probability estimates or probability matching relate to your conception of the correct response over time?

comment Quantify degree to which non-diagnostic features bias category-present response
I just had a couple of queries: (a) Assuming that a feature of an object is perfectly unrelated to being in a category. I.e., probability of category membership is 50%. Then expected number correct would be identical irrespective of the response strategy used (i.e., always say yes, always say no, 70% yes, etc.). Thus, how can you say that responding "yes" 50% of the time is "correct"?

comment What is the scientific support for Einstein's claim about the negative effects of reading too much?
It seems there are two issues: (1) what is the scientific claim implicit in the quote; and (2) what is the support for that claim once disambiguated. I've tweaked the title to perhaps better capture this twofold issue.

perhaps this title better captures the question - i.e., focussing on what the quote means?
