comment What are the positive and negative effects of insulin on cognitive function?
Don't take it personally, but this is a ridiculous question. You have in hand a study that "seems to imply" it has an effect, but you ask anonymous users of an internet website to tell you whether the authors are right or not - something which only further experiments can clarify. The only answer to such a question is "Do your own study, and then draw your own conclusions".

comment Measuring the density of surface antigens
FRET could work. He'd have to tag both the antigen and antibody, though He probably would be better off with standard fluorescence spectroscopy.

Are you looking for extraction techniques, or techniques to analyze your extracted molecules?

comment How is the blood volume of a living organism measured without killing it?
Your model isn't very accurate since it depends on making a "rough estimate" of the amount of blood before making any measurements. That's a huge bias that can't be overcome later. I also think your suggestion of removing 10% of the estimated blood volume isn't commendable. What happens in a case where you over-estimated the blood volume? Your model works, but only for an estimation. I think you should provide the equation for any readers who aren't very mathy.

comment How does a tree trunk sprout and grow after being cut?
Does this happen to other people? I've cut trees before, and never seen that happen... Exactly what trees are you talking about? From what part of the tree were cut the sprouting logs, top or bottom? Be more specific please!

Well, what is your definition of swimming? That needs to be cleared before getting any further.
