How Only Using Logic Destroyed a Man’s Life -- Science of Us
"Antonio Damasio calls this the “high-reason view.” It assumes, he writes in his seminal book Descartes’ Error, that when people are at their decision-making best, that they’re the “pride and joy” of Plato, Rene Descartes, and Immanuel Kant, all of whom espoused a coolly computational mode. “An important aspect of the rationalist conception is that to obtain the best results, emotions must be kept out,” Damasio observes. “Rational processing must be unencumbered by passion.”"

Display refreshing - Psychology vs the graphics pipeline
To test this prediction we exposed participants to photographs of faces or polygons [on a computer monitor] at suboptimal durations (40 ms) and optimal durations (400 ms).

This is interesting because most modern monitors cannot display an image for exactly 40ms. At the typical refresh rate of 60hz you can display an image for 33ms or 50ms, but not 40ms.
