comment What delay between two audio sources is seen as “noticeable” to most people?
You might want to search for "auditory gap detection".

How about starting with en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cortical_column ?

comment Can learning be facilitated by transcranial magnetic stimulation?
@NickStauner: With mixing up, I referred to the following. In the paragraph starting with "Going a little wide..." you wrote about tDCS, in the next paragraph ("Also (16th Google hit)...") about TMS, in the next ("In anticipation of the next") about both tDCS and TMS again. Apart from the fact that both TMS and tDCS are methods of non-invasive brain stimulation, they have not much in common since the underlying principles are very different and so are the risks of the methods. Judging from what I have read so far, review papers that refer to both methods make this distinction quite clear.

Please note that TMS and tDCS are completely different methods that should not be mixed up like you did in your answer.

Your description pretty much sounds like Steven's Power Law could be a good starting point for your endeavor: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevens%27_power_law

comment Good conferences on (computational) neuroscience in Europe and whether to submit to conference or journal?
The Bernstein Conference in Germany is nice: bernstein-conference.de. Concerning publications: I might be wrong, but I do not think that conference proceedings are that much valued in neuroscience. The standard way is to publish in peer reviewed journals.

comment Why does strobe lighting trigger seizures in photosensitive epilepsy?
Pulsating visual stimuli can cause steady state visually evoked potentials, that is, brain oscillations with a frequency matching the visual stimulation: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steady_state_visually_evoked_potential. I would guess that these evoked oscillations are the cause for the seizure.

comment Does winning the Fields medal decrease subsequent research achievement?
I would guess that the prize just allows them to step off the academic treadmill; they might not feel the need to "publish or perish" anymore.
