Dave Munger selects several notable posts each week from psychology and neuroscience. He blogs at Cognitive Daily.
- DEET not so neurotoxic after all. The Neuroskeptic deflates an overhyped media frenzy.
- Happy people tolerate pain longer. A thoughtful post investigating the complex variables affecting pain perception.
- Women eat less when dining with men. A fascinating observational study confirming a long-held stereotype (at least for college students).
- Attractiveness ratings: Is a “10″ always a “10″? An investigative blog post about the difference in scientific studies of attractiveness versus “hot-or-not” web sites.
