that's a coincidence; I've +1'd; I have to wait 24 hours before a decision about bounties can be made.

comment What causes some women to have repeated abortions?
Tweaked the question a little bit to try make it flow from what can be taken from the initial paper to the ultimate question.

comment Which political system stimulates individuals the most to strive for the greater good?
Not a close vote from me, but I wonder what are some examples of "aspects of a political system" that you had in mind. For example, there are formal and informal aspects of the political system. And are you more concerned with the governing or the governed? Are you talking about individual level effects or society-level effects? What kind of psychological evidence did you have in mind as opposed to argument that would be more suited on say politics.stackexchange.com

comment Are there any cognitive models for image interpretation?
How are you defining "image interpretation"? There are big literatures on a range of topics such as visual categorisation, visual discrimination, aesthetic judgements, etc.

comment Does identifying a student's sensory learning style and exploiting it result in significantly better performance?
My answer would also be no for the same reasons I articulate on this previous learning styles question (not a duplicate question)

Okay. I've added the refs and a quote from one of them.

@Ofri perhaps you could add those references as a spearate answer; or if you'd prefer I could just add the refs to my answer. My answer is quite light on the references regarding working memory training, although my general reading of the literature has led me to be very sceptical.

comment Is there any empirical support evaluating the fast phobia cure?
See this previous question for the issue of general scientific evaluation of NLP; With the aim of not closing this as a duplicate, I've edited your question to focus on the specific part of your question which is unique.

comment Does straightening your back increase confidence?
@EnoqueDuarte It does sound like a separate question. Why not ask a separate question about this.

comment Why do power laws describe learning and skill acquisition so well?
Each of these questions are probably enough for a stand alone question. Is there a particular question that you want to focus on?

comment What is the name of text analysis where emotional tone of words is analyzed?
I agree with Chuck, your question is not exactly the same, but the answers for the previous one definitely answer your question.

comment What causes student errors on a problem involving differentiating a factorial?
@PKG I guess knowing that fact is only the first step. Applying it to the factorial presumably is more challenging. It would be interesting to sit down one-on-one with a few students and get them to verbalise their reasoning processes.

comment How can surprise be labelled conscious when mismatch negativity shows that surprise takes place earlier than conscious states?
@danu thanks for not minding my tinkering. I like to do things like tweak the title and make the question bold so that others who land on the question in the future, can see what's going on very quickly.
