I am a Lecturer in the School of Psychology at Deakin University bridging I/O psychology and statistics.

I'm quite active on the Cognitive Sciences and Statistics Stack Exchanges.

You can find me also on:

comment Do measures of Big 5 personality have a positive bias towards extraverted, conscientious, emotionally stable, ageeable and open individuals?
Thanks. The article seems to provide standard psychometric information: i.e., the factor structure of the test, gender differences, whether test scores predict relevant criteria including job satisfaction and counter productive work behaviour; it doesn't directly seem to go into whether items have a positivity bias.

comment Why different responses to target and distractor in three-stimulus oddball procedure?
Just as a small side point, you are welcome to write an answer to your own question, particularly if it is well reasoned.

comment Are there “6 degrees of separation” for ideas?
Could you further explain how you see the 6 degrees of separation idea relating to the general issue of the brain or mind implicitly connecting ideas?

comment How to use Mechanical Turk for longer studies (i.e., 30 minutes+)?
@jeff It's good that it's possible, but I get the impression that there might be additional issues with longer studies around motivating participants to complete the task in the first place and ensuring that they perform the task conscientiously.

comment How to use Mechanical Turk for longer studies (i.e., 30 minutes+)?
@ofri I imagine speed of recruitment and cost effectiveness are the two main motivations. For example, If I could get 200 conscientious participants to complete a 30 minute study for US\$5 or US\$10 per participant, and it could all be finalised in a day or so, that would make my life a lot easier. mturk manages payment and it also manages the mapping of free time to tasks.

You're right. I thought I remembered seeing a question like this before. It looks like I even answered it :-)

@juilee interesting question. I encourage you to ask a separate question about this, perhaps with a link to this one.

comment Does masturbation in men negatively affect cognitive processes?
Okay. I agree. They are all interesting questions. I guess questions on this site are most interesting to me when they have the right scope. My sense is that the mood versus cognitive questions and time frame would influence the answer you get to this question quite a bit.

comment Implementation Intentions and Mental Contrasting vs Meditation
So, could you phrase your question more precisely: (a) is it about the effects of mediation on a given outcome? or (b) is it about a critical analysis of existing meditation research?

comment Does masturbation in men negatively affect cognitive processes?
(a) are you interested in the effect of sexual arousal during masturbation, immediately post orgasm, or in general on days with and without masturbation? (b) Are you only interested in cognitive performance or are you also interested in mood, personality, and so on?

comment When did neurotransmitters derived from monoamines first appear in evolutionary history?
Just curious, the wikipedia entry on the evolution of monoamine neurotransmitters links to this article; is it useful? Lövheim, Hugo (2012). "A new three-dimensional model for emotions and monoamine neurotransmitters". Medical Hypotheses 78 (2): 341–8. doi:10.1016/j.mehy.2011.11.016. PMID 22153577.

Would you be able to add a reference discussing how hypnosis is similar to meditation?
