The Thoughtful Animal

Here are my Research Blogging Editor’s Selections for this week.

  • Social hierarchies are pretty complicated to navigate…so why have them at all? Read about The Status Paradox at Psych Your Mind.
  • ADHD well known, but how might an ADHD diagnosis interact with being an athlete? What should practitioners of sports medicine know about it? Bill Yates discusses this at his Brain Posts blog: ADHD and the Athlete.
  • Do fish feel pain? It’s not a trivial question, especially if you are aware of what is on the dinner table. At the Fish Addict blog, grad student David discusses a new report on pain and nociception in fish.

That’s it for this week… Check back next week for more great psychology and neuroscience blogging!
