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.

comment Does dopamine signal become stronger when goal distance is defined using time?
For the record: I just left a comment to inform you why I down-voted your answer. The rest of this conversation arose from commenting on your replies rather than being bothered by your answer.

comment Does dopamine signal become stronger when goal distance is defined using time?
Please pardon me, but what is the downside of providing an answer that does attempt to tackle the question? Exactly this! I thought that this is a Q&A site, not a brain storming site or a place to drop lots of references that only marginally touch the topic.

So if you consider your answer incomplete, why do you post it here at all?

comment Are there guidelines in the peer reviewing process on assessing methodology?
Another interesting paper on the same topic: Niewenhius et al (2011). Erroneous analyses of interactions in neuroscience: a problem of significance. Nature Neuroscience 14, 1105–1107, nature.com/neuro/journal/v14/n9/abs/nn.2886.html
