comment Computational Neuroscience software
As is, this question is overly broad and open-ended. Please consider editing your question to be more focused and address a problem that you face, rather than simply a discussion.

comment How to design research participant recruitment flyer to maximise participant response?
IMO this is a little too open-ended and "discussion-y"; unless of course there an empirical paper on which techniques are most effective! also, it's not very specific to cogsci-- lots of disciplines post recruitment fliers. perhaps a question better asked in chat...

comment What is the status of evolutionary psychology in academia today?
Interesting, but note that OP is asking about the status of evolutionary psychology today, not in 1981. I suppose what you're saying is that these articles commonly appear on social psych syllabi today?

@AlexStone I'm not sure either, but it seems like something we need to confirm before we're able to answer the main portion of your question...

comment Inducing Auditory-to-Visual Synesthesia
also, could you possibly cite or provide a link to the original video if possible? it could help us figure out if a) your interpretation is simply incorrect or b) the claim isn't really a scientific one, etc.

comment Inducing Auditory-to-Visual Synesthesia
i understand. my concern is that 'synesthesia' is a neurological conditions, and so it is impossible to 'induce synesthesia' by virtue of its definition (short of rewiring the cortex...). Perhaps just changing it to 'synesthesia-like symptoms' would suffice, or maybe someone else has a better suggestion
