comment Meditation for patients with neuroleptic induced tension
@ChuckSherrington I meant, if there is some kind of processing thoughts, feelings or imaginations that is beneficial in the state of mind influenced by antipsychotics. But maybe I could omit this sentence.

comment How can motivation be increased by improving brain chemistry with nutrition and activities?
Thank you for your answer. I will take some time to read the references and then accept it. I'd like to address a few more topics if possible. Particularly motivation of depressed people for doing small things (hygiene, gardening, cooking etc.) and how it could be increased (without medicaments) with targeting particular foods and vitamins (e.g. I heard about high doses of niacin). The topics like sexual activity, relationships, emotions and stress with regard to brain chemistry are also worth interest.

comment How to get rid of subvocalization?
Another problem is this may invoke something like epilepsy. In that time my goal wasn't getting rid of subvocalization but increase the speed directly, but because after long practicing was invoking something weird in my nervous system, I stopped with it.

comment How to get rid of subvocalization?
A year ago I was using similar RSVP software, its name was Dictator and its advantage was chunking the text into little more meaningful chunks but still semantically quite bad (H.Muster talks about it).

It would be great if there was some evidence (statistical) with people who attended these exercises and made some progress in speed and test the quality of their comprehension with additional question about the text.

comment Effect of words highlighting on reading comprehension
@ArtemKaznatcheev It's related because it's visual representation of concepts underlying meaning (semantics) and improves reading comprehension (at least I think) and I wrote ideas that inspired me because Andy DeSoto asked for it in the first comment.

comment Effect of words highlighting on reading comprehension
Thank you. I was thinking about highlighting only noun and verb in each sentence which could be according to your scientific view yet OK. btw. the article from 2008 is this one?

comment Effect of words highlighting on reading comprehension
@StevenJeuris Note that my original title was not with "syntax" word. I have the same opinion. The highlighting should in some way (e.g. via POSs to show noun-verb connection quickly) reflect the semantics. I can figure out semantics more quickly when reading in Chinese, so think that colors for alphabetical writing systems can play similar role.

comment Encoding of abstract concepts in memory
I read the link but still don't have a feeling that the question is answered. But thanks for other useful information.

Could you please write in short about their technique? Is something available on the internet? I haven't found the transcripts of Bed Pridmore on the web, has it some title or ISBN?
