Jason Goldman selects several notable posts each week from Psychology and Neuroscience. He blogs at The Thoughtful Animal.
- Those of you do not know me personally might not know I’m kind of an introvert. Those of you who do not work at the other desk in my office might not know I like working to music. But a new post at BPS Occupational Digest says that I shouldn’t like working to music if I’m an introvert. Or, at least, if I’m an introverted female school-age child in the UK. Which I’m not. So I’ll go back to listening to music while I work.
- At the Why We Reason blog, find out the latest in embodied cognition research: why you give more to charity when you’re elevated.
- Finally, why do brain scanners make your head spin? Neuroskeptic explains.
That’s it for this week… Check back next week for more great psychology and neuroscience blogging!
