I’m on the road this week, so I’m a little late getting to these. But Research Blogging stops for no one! Without further ado, here are this week’s selections:
- Daniel Simons and Christopher Chabris have an excellent new blog! And here’s an excellent post on the problems with heads up displays.
- Mo Costandi covers a fascinating sensory organ in snakes that allows them to detect infrared radiation. That’s right, snakes can detect body heat!
- Body and Mind has a guest post by Matt Longo about a fascinating sensorimotor illusion that makes you feel like your arm is shrinking.
- How do we know a science has made the big time? When its research reports have dozens of authors, says Tal Yarkoni. Yes, he’s serious about this.
