I want to ask here, where you draw the line between cognitivesciences.se and biology.se, as there is some interdisciplinary overlap, when it comes to
- Evolutionary Psychology
- Neuroscience (-Physiology/-biology)
Seems tricky to me to find clear guidelines, esp. as cognisciences.se also has a neurobiology tag and some questions here I looked up would imho better fit biology.SE and yield better answers (The user overlap on both sites seems marginal). Taking this question as a example, every Q&A on human abnormalities in my humble opinion belongs to cognisciences.se, as from a methodological point of view biology deals with comparing characterics between different type of organisms. So as physics is a underlying key discipline for biology, biology is a underlying key discipline for Psychology. But purely human abnormalities therefore cannot be analysed by physical or biological theories. There is no methodological way in biology to explain and categorize autism between different organisms. This belongs to psychiatry or human medicine. Emerging field of epigenetics has shown that genetics is no "theory of everything" in biology and psychology, esp. for evolutionary psychology and religious studies. There are strong external environmental factors. But is epignetics on topic on cognitivesciences.se?
To my knowledge Autism is also no behavioural disorder, it is a development disorder, but Im no expert of exact terminology here. I dont have to explain in detail how much and hard discussion on a link between genetics and human behaviour there is, the blogosphere is full of blogs on evolutionary psychology and religious studies ("using" evolution theory as explanation) with superficial generalizations. So it may be crucial to establish some clear guidelines the user of this site can rely on, to keep pseudo-sciene and generalizations as much as possible from this site away. Therefore I would rather tend to migrate or close questions on human behaviour and esp. purely human characterics of behaviour to cognitivesciences.se, if there is not really a clear specified context in the question with neurobiological basis/context.
Just my thoughts what answers here should regard besides problems and factors I missed. I think for neuroscience the guidelines are more intuitive, theory of mind, neural networks belongs to cogniscience.se, while neurophysiology of course better fits biology.se. We probably should find a agreement, so neurobiology doesnt become splitted 50:50 on both sites. IMHO with merging everything of psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience this site has a pretty big scope now. Do you want to keep neurobiology questions here?
TL:DR What guidelines exist to migrate a question tagged with neurobiology, animal/human behaviour to biology.SE/cognisciences.SE? Alot neuroscience experiments use monkeys, where to ask such questions? If the questioner thinks he will get a better answer on this site, one may think its ok, but what I personally dislike strongly it splitting up complex topic like neurobiology on 2 sites.
