comment Does this neural network model exist?
yes, i agree lemmas are probably shared, but that is an empirical question. and yes, translating a word from a language in which no suitable word exists in the target language probably does rely on different processes, but this is relatively rare

comment Does this neural network model exist?
yes, basically. most models of spoken word production posit at least 3 levels: semantic features, lemma, and phonemes. if words of different language share the same lemma (this is debated), then translating a word may involve going up only one level, from phonemes to lemma, and then back down to the phonemes of another language, without accessing the semantic features of a word

comment Does this neural network model exist?
ah interesting! keep in mind there is a lot of literature on bilingualism and translation out there; there is at least some evidence to suggest translating does not need to activate semantic features (perhaps two lexical nodes are joined at the lemma level).

comment Does this neural network model exist?
it's not really clear to me what the goal of this neural network is, what the distinction between "layer" and the circles in your diagram, or why this is "more biological". If you are interested in neural networks of semantic cognition, there are several. Perhaps you could start here: psych.stanford.edu/~jlm/papers/McCRogers03.pdf

comment How are people able to wake themselves up after a pre-specified amount of time?
yup, that's why i left it as a comment... but you may try reading the Moorcroft article and looking through its citations as well, there may be an answer there somewhere

Also see Jeromy's answer to a related question, specifically the section titled "Research on alarm clocks" @ cogsci.stackexchange.com/a/1371/55

ah, yes. i think advertising in particular is full of voodoo. marketing journals have some good stuff, though.

comment How much red/orange is needed to stimulate hunger?
agreed that the second study is only tangentially on topic, though you didn't say in your Q anything about red food vs red environment. not sure what you mean by 'its well known because everyone knows it'.
