comment What is the current status of neuroeducation?
I've tried to make this more concrete than just "what do you think of x?" However, the question probably needs more development in terms of what you're hoping to find out.

comment How to calculate IQ score based on raw score and adjust for age?
Age adjustment is not routinely done for adults. raw IQ is fairly stable over early-middle adulthood, whereas raw scores on IQ tests change a lot over childhood.

comment cleanIAT function in R IAT package
I guess you could read the authors code either by typing cleanIAT or looking at the function on github: github.com/dpmartin42/IAT/blob/master/R/cleanIAT.R Or perhaps see whether the author, Dan, would post an answer here: dpmartin42.github.io

comment cleanIAT function in R IAT package
Could you post a reproducible example. E.g., perhaps show us the input and output using the built in dataset.

comment Is speed up of arithmetic calculations as a result of memorisation?
I don't have time for a complete answer, but check out the concept of "algorithm-retrieval shift" and how it is believed to underly a lot of cognitive skill acquisition including basic arithmetic operations. e.g., google scholar for "algorithm retrieval shift multiplication child"

comment Personality trait in which the person's style is evident regardless of the situation?
It wasn't horrible. It's just that stack exchange is not like forums. It is very focused Q&A.

comment What is the relationship between perceived difficulty and mistakes/errors?
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.

comment Scientific name for the phrase: “The first image is the image that stays”
@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.

comment How to interpret intelligence test scores for an individual who has taken a test multiple times in quick succession?
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.

comment How to test whether a person is Left-Eared or Right-Eared?
@ekhumoro That sounds like a good synopsis. I imagine there's more research out there. Perhaps check out scholar.google.com/scholar?q=earedness

comment Where can I find decent descriptions for each Big5 facet?
Are you only interested in the NEO PI Big 5 facet structure? It is worth noting that there are other many other factor-facet models of personality, some of which are also based on the Big 5.

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?

comment Why might mindfulness and meditation lead to anger and anxiety?
@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.
