comment Are there any rules about masking?
Interesting question. I was testing an iPhone app for "memory improvement" - repeat the yellow circle pattern seen on the screen. After each pattern it flashed all dots with green color. Your question makes me understand why the author did that.

Deception, disbelief or cognitive dissonance, I'm not sure what word properly describes the phenomenon that results in getting an almost irresistible urge to scratch one's nose in response to verbal statements.

comment Is there a learning style that involves learning best by teaching others?
This might have to do with retention effectiveness - people retain more if they see, say and do something versus any one of these in isolation. Teaching others incorporates seeing, saying, doing and remembering, thus the teacher understands the material better

comment Does cognitive training enhance dopamine release?
