Editor’s Selections: Tetris Therapy, Making Fish Faces, and Neural Connectivity

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

  • According to the Neurocritic, “Most everything you’ve read about the Doctors Prescribing ‘Tetris Therapy’ study is wrong.” Find out why.
  • What happens when a fish sees its own reflection? If you’re like most people, you’d say that he fish treats the reflection as if it were another fish. But Zen Faulkes of Neurodojo explains why you might be wrong.
  • John Brock of the blog ‘Cracking the Enigma’ wonders if one of the so-called “autism genes” is more specifically involved with neural connectivity. He writes, “Having this gene doesn’t mean that you’ve got autism. It doesn’t even mean there’s a high risk of autism. But it may have a subtle effect on the way the brain is wired up and this may put you at an ever-so-slightly higher risk of having autism. Or schizophrenia. Or language difficulties.” Sounds complicated? Let John explain.

Finally, a friendly reminder to submit your favorite posts for Open Lab – only two weeks left!

    Interesting topic but I’m not sure that I agree with you. Things like this have chanbged the way the web was formed and created. Is it really as simple as changing out the direction and watching the web change?
