Editor’s Selections: Science of Superheroes, The Problem with Mobile Apps, and Imaging the Brain’s AcidityMay 14th, 2012 Editor's Selections 14 Comments
Sarah Kendrew selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the physical sciences, chemistry, engineering, computer science, geosciences and mathematics. She blogs about astronomy at One Small Step.
Here are some great reads from the last week on ResearchBlogging in the physical sciences.
Like the rest of the world’s population, I watched Avengers last week and really enjoyed it. So a study on the science of superheroes obviously caught my eye. A fun read from Cath on Basal Science Clarified.
On O’Really, Duncan Hull raises some very good points about the way mobile apps are needlessly reinventing the wheel.
Neuroskeptic describes some cool new research that allows neuroscientists to visualise acidity changes in the brain using MRI technology.
That’s it for now. I’ll be back next week with more selections!
