Editor’s Selections: Funny Men and No-High Hemp

Editor's Selections 6 Comments
By Jason Goldman

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

  • At Inkfish, Elizabeth Preston asks, “Are Women Really Less Funny Than Men?” They might, but only a little bit. And the more interesting question is why that might be the case.
  • Why does marijuana get you high, but hemp doesn’t? Dirk Hanson has the answers, and they lie in genetics. He writes, “More than 20 plant genomes have now been sequenced, including corn and rice, but Cannabis sativa marks the first genomic sequencing of a traditional medicinal plant.”

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

    I feel that is an intriguing point, it produced me believe a bit. Thanks for sparking my thinking cap. Oftentimes I get so much in a rut that I just feel like a record.

    Music is really a source of excellent entertainment for me personally. I particularly like the digital grand piano pop tracks.
