Editor’s Selections: Front Lawns, Running, and Synesthesia

Editor's Selections 4 Comments

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

  • “In the front yard, lawns still rule,” writes Tim de Chant at the Per Square Mile blog. But why? People spend more time hanging out in the backyard. It makes more ecological sense to do away with front yard turf.
  • Is there a relationship between brain size and athleticism? Are those with bigger brains able to run farther, faster? At Science-Based Running, Dave Munger explores this question. This answer (with caveats, of course) appears to be: yes.
  • Do you see what I hear? At the Try Nerdy Blog, read one blogger’s personal account of childhood synesthesia, and learn about the brain-basis for this fascinating phenomenon.

That’s it for this week… Check back next week for more great psychology and neuroscience blogging!

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess i’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for inexperienced blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
