The Thoughtful Animal

I’m working on putting together a resource sheet for various people (teachers, professors, graduate students, etc) that will help them find psychology-related resources on the web.

And I can use your help. To start with, I’m compiling as extensive a list as is reasonably possible of psychology and related blogs.

Here is a starter list, that I put together in about five minutes. What other blogs do you read, that I don’t have listed here, that belong in the list? The criteria are (1) they’re good, (2) they do research blogging (though they need not exclusively do research blogging, and they need not aggregate their posts on, and (3) they primarily cover psychology or psychology-related topics (e.g. neuroscience blogs that often take a behavioral, affective, cognitive, or clinical perspective are included). I know I’m missing some obvious ones, and I’m sure I’m missing plenty more ones that I’m not yet familiar with.

So, help me: what’s missing? (my blog)

    A list of blog titles would be helpful. I subscribe to Deric Bownds’ Mindblog, and quite a few others, but I don’t have time to click on the links to see if those are blogs I subscribe to.

    I can pimp ours, to start with.

    Notes from Two Scientific Psychologists:

    We don’t blog for a general audience, but we do blog about research 🙂

    I’ll have a think about others, although you’ve got a lot of the main ones. Mark Changizi is in several places these days, but is probably worth adding to the list.

    There’s a lot of psychology stuff on – especially the “psychobabble” column:

    It might be useful to reference some sites other than blogs. While blogs can provide some insight into current research, they do not always provide foundations, or if they do there is no simple way to find them. Links to professional societies’ education pages, or online textbooks, teaching resources, etc. could be useful. These are also better organized and more searchable than blogs.

    @Namnezia: certainly, and I intend to do so. I’m just starting by crowdsourcing the blogs.

    Finds interesting psych/neuroscience papers, posts almost daily
    (disclaimer: my blog. I usually try to post 2-3 times a week, mainly studies in the psychology/cognitive neuroscience arena)

    Robert Kurzban’s blog is a good read…
