comment Causal reasoning(implicit models?) vs grammar of native language
@ChristianHummeluhr: Am not comfortable phrasing it as broad as cognitive differences. I do agree there might not be scientific answer at the moment, but it's not never gonna be answered question.

comment Causal reasoning(implicit models?) vs grammar of native language
Hmm.. broad?..ok, how would you make it narrower? I thought I made it as specific as i could.

comment What are the benefits of transformational over transactional leadership?
Can you elaborate or summarize these articles? Otherwise this answer is too vague.

comment Why do drivers not slow down when they see signs indicating road work?
You can add references to these studies. it should be fairly simple to look up some of these studies..Ideally, you should summarise the study and elaborate it a little more.

comment What is the scientific support for Einstein's claim about the negative effects of reading too much?
@Chris: My objection to this question is that, it is too unresearched for the site. I suggest adding/dividing up the question. Look up resources of EEG studies while reading, other accepted/established cog.processes involved in reading and expand it better.

@JoshGitlin: I did a quick search on google scholar, and realized there's a lot more i have to read just to get this question more clear. Will do that once i get some free time. In fact i don't think i saw any established experimental paradigm for causal models used by people.

comment How does body temperature affect perception of time?
@user1306322: Looks like my edits were too radical and did not get approved. I was wondering that myself. Anyway, for the first question, I'd recommend looking/googling for correlational studies between body temperature vs duration judgement tasks. As for the second question(emotions vs hot/cold beverages). i think this is even more conflated.So i'll just throw keywords like affect, arousal level, body temperature, and of course duration judgement.

comment Does the effect of naturalistic exposure on second language acquisition vary with age?
This reminds me of the anecdotal evidence on how immersing/moving to a country where the language is the de facto, provides a huge difference. My personal experience agrees, though i suppose it is rooted it in how much attention is paid to the new language. I don't have to pay attention to the new language in my hometown.

@ChuckSherrington: Infact, after thinking about it and adding the edit, am sure, this question can work in biology.stackexchange too.

Too wordy, can be improved with better structuring/formatting plus original citation.

comment How can I create computer based psychology experiments using OS X?
@Mike : Any plans of creating a open-source python project(aimed at replacing e-prime or such)?? I am a python programmer, have some experience with eye-tracking experiments and would be happy to contribute to such an effort.

comment How is motivation influenced by chance of reward?
@ChrisS: copy, paste missed out the variables. But even the wiki page doesn't have explanation for w. I would guess it's the weighting the agent assigns to the outcome. but that's just a guess. need original citation for more clarity.
