comment Are there any open access journals in the cognitive sciences with impact factor >1
I am not too much into cogsci, but definitely there are 3 "generalistic" options: PlOS One, PlOS Biology and Nature Communications, all released under a CC licence. Many journals also give the possibility to authors to release their paper as open access.

comment What can cognitive psychology tell us about the results of the Stanford Prison Experiment?
Just as a reference, a very good movie has been made out of it: Das experiment. And, sadly, someone felt the urge of making an Holliwood remake of this fine German movie...

comment Why are people inclined to praise or fear the unknown?
"Scientists turn to their beliefs just as much as religious people, because belief is the thing that covers those thigs we don't understand.". With the big difference that for scientists that is the starting point, for religious people that is the final explanation.

comment Is there a practical limit to the amount of knowledge a human can learn?
