Editor rating: 7 / 10Lesley Rogers –– The role of 5-HT in aggressive and other behaviour is an important topic and this paper adds considerably to the field. It highlights the importance of investigating the role of 5-HT in different species.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Shane Mueller –– The article provides a useful look at (mis)-use of a common tool in the discipline. But this tools is used across most areas of science, and so may have broad interest.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Peter Graf –– I believe this article will increase awareness of the pitfalls involved in student teaching evaluations. Such evaluations are used as if they were fact, rather than popularity indexes. If I were the author of the article, I would conclude by speculating that students evaluations are comparable to likes on Facebook.

Editor rating: 8 / 10Anthony Barnhart –– The previous version of the Embedded Figures Test has been the focus of much research and has led to rampant theorizing that moves well beyond what can be inferred from performance on the measure. The new test, developed and tested in this manuscript, allows for enhanced clarity on the mechanisms underlying performance on the measure and will be a boon for future research in the area of feature embedding and individual differences.
Editor rating: 8 / 10Tsung-Min Hung –– This study reported a longitudinal study examined the effect of yoga on the attention in children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. This is the first of its kind in employing yoga, a type exercise that focus on controling both body and mind. This study will stimulate more similar kind of study in the future.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jon Brock –– Autism research is increasingly moving towards a "big data" approach. This review of the available databases will be an invaluable resource for researchers in the field.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Mario Negrello –– This article contains an insighful and thorough analysis of the physical constraints for encoding and the processing of information in polarized vision, and more specifically, in polarization opponency. This article is exemplary for the field of neural coding in that it covers multiple angles in the analysis with solid logics and deep appreciation for the biological phenomenon under study.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Luciano Fadiga –– technically sound, it addresses a relevant topic
