Editor’s Selections: TV, Changing Your Mind, and Reading Your Mind

Editor's Selections 48 Comments
By Jason Goldman

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

  • Here’s an old argument: TV affects kids’ attention spans. But is it true? And if true, what is the mechanism behind the attention reduction? Find out at the Mr. Epidemiology blog.
  • Why is it hard to change your mind? At the blog “peer reviewed by my neurons,” learn how the potential for future regret complicates things.
  • Finally, the big neuroscience news this week was about how fMRI could decode what a person was looking at based on the activity in his or her visual cortex. Read about it at Try Nerdy and at xcorr.

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

    I don’t actually care how or after i get the Letters in the Mail. Every time it arrives, it feels like a letter should be. It’s suddenly there in my mail box an individual day. A good, tangible surprise. I am for you doing whatever you want when you send it. Mix it up for the men and women who help get it sent out. Include crumbs from your lunch. Coffee stains. Whatever. Keep the tedious nature of getting letters out to a minimum by doing whatever you feel like that day. The arrival from the letter and the words on the author inside are what matters. Personally, what I like very best about The Rumpus is that I hardly ever know what I’ll go through that day. Or if there is just not one that day, maybe it’s because Stephen couldn’t uncover anything to say or there was also much heading on.
