Jason Goldman selects several notable posts each week from Psychology and Neuroscience. He blogs at The Thoughtful Animal.
- To start things off, Krystal D’Costa of Anthropology in Practice discusses the science of women’s shoes.
- Was the “Gay Caveman” really gay? Or even a caveman? Eric M. Johnson takes his blog tour to David Dobbs’s Neuron Culture blog: The Allure of the Gay Caveman.
- It is often suggested that differences in neural connectivity or wiring may underlie some psychopathologies. Here’s some evidence from Neuroskeptic that this may indeed be the case, at least for schizophrenia. Maybe.
- What are the ten most cited papers in Neuroscience? Well, that depends on what you mean by ‘neuroscience,’ to start with. But Bradley Voytek has some interesting data porn over at Oscillatory Thoughts. (And, on a similar subject, BPS Research Digest points out that psychologists like to cite themselves.)
