Jason Goldman selects several notable posts each week from Psychology and Neuroscience. He blogs at The Thoughtful Animal.
A few hours late, but full of psychological and neurosciencey goodness as always!

- A topic near and dear to my own heart: Do we learn through experience to navigate the world, or as the philosopher Immanuel Kant suggested, are we born with innate mental “building blocks” for things like space and time? Neuroskeptic reviews two new interesting papers which found support for the Kantian model.
- Another recent paper suggested that the crayfish might be a good model for economic decision making. Zen Faulkes of Neurodojo isn’t so sure.
- How does your brain imagine motor actions? Shikta of the Body in Mind blog offers A University Student’s Guide to Motor Imagery.
