comment Are there any cognitive models for visual navigation?
There's also this talk on neurons involved in remembering position of objects and locating oneself in space: ted.com/talks/…

comment How does personality moderate or mediate the relationship between stress and burnout?
There's a trait called "grit" that is described here: ted.com/talks/angela_lee_duckworth_the_key_to_success_grit.html . I'm not sure if this is a physiological or a personality trait though.

comment Getting started with EEG data
Epoc, Neurosky and similar consumer-grade "toys" provide some insight that there is activity going on, but are not sensitive enough to really take a look at what's going on in the brain. Many of these devices are based on the same microchip too.

comment Does dream recall disturb the processes of memory consolidation?
There has been this recent article that actually argues that dreaming and REM sleep are not the same, and implicates that dopaminergic activity is involved in dreaming: neuro.bstu.by/ai/To-dom/My_research/Papers-2.1/Cognitive-S/…

"6 degrees of separation" is the closest term I could think of for the idea connection phenomenon I'm trying to understand.

comment What Quantified Self reserach tools are there for measuring performance while playing videogames?
That question has an amazing number of answers, however, I'm looking for something more practical that can run in background and collect data about performance, rather than papers that describe what happens over time of playing

The response to light takes time to set in. Check out this video for hands on methods (towards the end of the video) youtu.be/PKIqW0FScik

comment Are there additional animal studies about superstitions?
I have personally observed similar behavior in small trout that is fed frequently at a local lake. The trout touches the surface of water (clear, nothing there), creating an air bubble that bursts with ripples, letting the feeder know trout is there. I saw the same behavior repeatedly when a person approaches lakeside. I hypothesize that these fish have an association between touching the surface and food falling there

comment Does the subjective experience of artificial light brightness vary for people, if so, by how much?
Interesting how I did not think about that. Thank you for the reminder
