Cognitive Daily

Category archives for General / Site news

We’ve heard from a few teachers who use Cognitive Daily in class, and we know several class web sites link to CogDaily. So we were wondering: if you’re a teacher, instructor, or professor, how do you use Cognitive Daily in your class? As a suggested supplemental reading? A required assignment? Or maybe you’ve consciously chosen…

Birthday present for me

Today is my birthday, so instead of offering a post for you, I thought I’d ask for a small gift. I’d like to revamp my personal web browsing system so that it’s more efficient. I already keep up with psychology blogs via RSS, but I’d like to start browsing other things — news, entertainment, and…

Omnispectacle? Retrobrain?

The number of psychology / neuroscience blogs on scienceblogs.com will soon decrease by one. However, the number of bloggers will stay the same. How is that possible? The hilarious Omni Brain and thought-provoking Restrospectacle are each closing down shop. But they’re re-emerging as a new blog that combines the efforts of Steve and Shelley. They…

ResearchBlogging.org doesn’t just enable you to mark posts with our icon, it also collects those posts in one central location. Readers can…

Correction

A reader pointed out to me that Schultze’s 1978 study did not find a bias to hear a fast tempo as speeding up and slow tempo as slowing down. In fact, Schultze found that we were remarkably accurate at detecting tempo changes. So we do replicate Schultze! A misreading on my part of Quinn and…

Scienceblogs has launched the beta version of its German-language site. You can check it out at Scienceblogs.de. The site looks great — I’ve never regretted not learning German more! It also offers a feature I’d like to see here on the English version: A thumbnail view of the ScienceBlogs Select feed (in English). The logical…

Developmental Psychology blogs?

A reader asks: I’ve been reading Cog Daily for about 4 months now and have always found that I am particularly fascinated with entries dealing with developmental psychology, such as the latest one regarding the logarithmic-like representation of numbers in young children. I was curious as to whether you knew of any [credible] blogs or…
