Editor’s Selections: Video Games, Blue Bananas, Housework, and Mirror Neurons

Editor's Selections 7 Comments

Jason GoldmanJason Goldman selects several notable posts each week from Psychology and Neuroscience. He blogs at The Thoughtful Animal.

More science, more blogging, more fantastic. Here are my picks this week:

  • Angry people might play video games to release pent up energy and aggression…But researchers find that it doesn’t really help. Neoacademic explains why.
  • Blue bananas and pink elephants. Kevin Mitchell at Wiring the Brain considers a rare condition called colour agnosia.
  • Stereotypically, men don’t love housework, but most at least begrudingly help out. New research finds that men who do less paid work than their female partners also do less housework than average men. Read about why on Strong Silent Types.
  • Does action understanding depend on a mirror neuron system? Find out at Talking Brains. The answer might surprise you.

    The arts are an even better barometer of what’s happening within our world compared to the stock market or perhaps the debates within congress.
