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

  • The Lies That Data Tell. Richard N. Landers describes an important new paper from the journal Psychological Science about how tests of statistical significance can mislead us.
  • The Plastic Brains of Birds. NeuroKuz reviews some recent research in the neurobiology of learning in songbirds, and its implications for understanding neural plasticity.
  • How The Brain Controls The (Non)Body. Studies of motor control investigate how the brain controls the body. Carl Kingston describes a study from the emerging field of neuroprosthetics – how the brain controls something other than the body.

    El aspirador Relaxx’x genera un máximo flujo de aire y, como resultado, un mayor porcentaje de recogida de suciedad gracias a la combinación de cuatro innovaciones técnicas: un potente flujo de aire, un diseño aerodinámico que reduce las resistencias al aire en todas las partes del aspirador, la tecnología compressor®, que mueve mayor caudal de aire con un bajo consumo de potencia, y un mayor diámetro desde el cepillo hasta el depósito del polvo, aumentando el canal por donde discurre el aire.
