comment Training for the corpus callosum?
@draks... can you elaborate on what you mean by 'train' the corpus callosum? the purpose of the CC is to transfer information between the two hemispheres. so that's a little like asking "can you train a pipe by having the water flow down one way?" i'm not exactly sure what that would mean.

comment Does associating a color with numbers improve math learning?
@draks... yes, i suspect so-- that is very similar to what Mills et al. (2009) is doing. There are also several standardized methods for diagnosing synesthesia though, so if that's your goal I would start there. I don't recall exactly what those tests ask offhand...

This question is not very clear, and OP hasn't addressed comments. Without further edits, I am voting to close. Also, the image appears unrelated to the question, so I have removed it.

comment Bias towards purchasing tangible vs virtual goods
One thing to consider is that it's the norm to pay for coffee, whereas it is the norm for virtual services to be free. So it may not be a matter of virtual vs physical goods, but of what people think is a "fair" price for something based on previous experience.

comment Devices that detect when someone is falling asleep
ah, interesting question nonetheless. i'd imagine there are many ways to detect this, but i'd like to see a comparison of methods.
