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

comment How much red/orange is needed to stimulate hunger?
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'.

comment How much sleep is required to restore maximum cognitive functioning?
vote to close: aside from being self-help, this question cannot be answered adequately. 'required' amount of sleep will vary with the individual, and is certainly not a step function. also, what are 'peak levels' of brain functionality? if we broaden the criteria required for an answer, then the question is simply asking for a review of sleep studies on cognition.

comment Does the person's walking say anything about the person's cognition?
Also, the second paragraph suggests several other useful articles: Barberger-Gateau et al., 1997; Chen et al., 1996; Lajoie, Teasdale, Bard, & Fleury, 1996; Li, Linderberger, Fruend, & Baltes, 2001; Linderberger, Marsiske, & Baltes, 2000; Sparrow, Bradshaw, Lamoureux, & Tirosh, 2002; Brauer, Woollacott, & ShumwayCook, 2001; Brown, Shumway-Cook, & Woollacott, 1999; Maylor, Allison, & Wing, 2001; Maylor & Wing, 1996; Redfern, Muller, Jennings, & Furman, 2002; Shumway-Cook, Woollacott, Kerns, & Baldwin, 1997; Teasdale, Bard, LaRue, & Fleury, 1993

comment Does the person's walking say anything about the person's cognition?
Alex I really appreciate your enthusiasm for this site, but I think you should consider putting some more effort into prior research before asking a question here. A search on google scholar for "gait cognition" turns up this article, and several others: apa.org/pubs/journals/releases/neu-202215.pdf
