Over at ResearchBlogging.org, in addition to my other duties, I’m serving as the Psychology/Neuroscience editor. Every week starting today, I’ll be making “Editor’s selections” — choose the top posts in these fields. For your convenience, I’m also sharing them here. Enjoy!
- Here’s one for your boss: Computer Games at Work are Good For You. With a few caveats, of course. Before you schedule the conference room for a 9-5 LAN party, you might want to read the post.

- Can the entire human brain actually be modeled with a computer? This fascinating blog post discusses a recent innovation clearing one major hurdle of that daunting task.
