Krystal D'Costa Krystal D’Costa selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the social sciences, including anthropology, research, and philosophy. She blogs about anthropology, technology, and urban life at Anthropology in Practice.

New and notable from the social sciences this past week on ResearchBlogging.org:

  • Do you remember that scene in Jurassic Park where Dr. Sattler digs through a pile of dinosaur droppings to try and determine if there’s a dietary reason causing one of the triceratops to be sick? Poop can be very informative. At Powered by Osteons, Kristina Killgrove tells readers how trove of human excrement may reveal a fair amount about Roman culture.
  • Though commonly associated with dolphins and bats, blind humans also use a form of echolocation to enhance perception. At Neuroanthropology, Greg Downey delves into the brain’s extraordinary ability to pull information from a variety of sources.
  • At From the Lab Bench, Paige Brown discusses the implications of ionizing radiation on reproductive health–the implications are not just biological, but cultural as well, as limited understanding of nuclear energy can generate a culture of fear that has far reaching effects.

I’ll be back next week with more from the social sciences.
