Here are my Research Blogging Editor’s Selections for this week.
So much good stuff this week, it was hard to choose. But choose I must:
- To start us out, Dr. Sharma of his eponymous blog discusses a new finding in neuroscience: is there a gene that’s associated with the so-called sweet tooth?
- Livia Blackburne tackles a fascinating question in her blog “A Brain Scientist’s Take on Writing” – Typing vs. Longhand: Does it Affect Your Writing?
- A Complete Stranger Understands You About As Well As Your Spouse Does. David Berreby of Mind Matters can help you understand what he means by this.
- “Do you take the fastest way home? Are you sure? Really?” It may not be so straightforward (heh). A blogger who goes by PsychBusyBee at the new blog ionpsych.com, explains.
- Gather around while Bradley Voytek of Oscillatory Thoughts explains how to become a better, more skeptical consumer of neuroscience news. He promises, “By the end of this post, not only will you be able to spot ‘neuro nonsense’ statements, but you’ll also be able to spot nonsense neuroscience questions.”
